Crago scores 23, Punxsy takes out Bradford

February 18, 2011

BRADFORD — The Punxsy girls' basketball team may not be going to the playoffs, but it finished the 2010-2011 season strong.

Punxsy completed the season with a three-win week once it defeated Bradford Friday night, 48-30.

The Lady Chucks (7-15) won't enter the playoffs this year, but they swept the Lady Owls (12-10), who will meet St. Marys in the District IX Class AAA title game. St. Marys and Kayla Hoohuli are in search of a fourth-straight crown.

Late push carries DuBois toward victory over Chucks

February 17, 2011

DUBOIS — Four-straight late victories that totaled 19 team points allowed DuBois to earn a 41-34 victory over the Punxsy wrestling team Thursday night.

The Chucks (12-12) were riding high after Tyler Titus' upset victory by fall at 215 pounds. They jumped ahead 28-22 with that win, but couldn't score again until Kody Young won by forfeit during the final bout of the night.

Unlike last week, when the Chucks received two big wins from freshmen Josh Schuckers and Joel Bowers to beat St. Marys, 34-30, the 103- and 112-pounders were unable to rise up once again.

February 17, 2011

BROOKVILLE — It was clear after Brookville's Brady Mineweaser upset Redbank Valley's Mitch Blose, helping the Raiders earn a 40-21 win over the Bulldogs Thursday night, that Mineweaser has bigger goals in mind.

February 16, 2011

HYDE — The Punxsy boys' basketball team didn't shoot well and had numerous turnovers during a 50-39 loss to Clearfield Wednesday night, but the Chucks still clinched a home playoff game in the process.

Punxsy (8-13) shot 34 percent from the field and had 16 turnovers, but due to Bradford's 51-36 loss to Elk County Catholic, the Chucks will be the No. 2 seed and the Owls will be the No. 3 seed in the semifinals of the District IX Class AAA playoffs.

Clearfield (5-17) will head to St. Marys (16-7) on the other end of the bracket.

Raiders earn first D-IX League title since '65

February 16, 2011

BROOKVILLE — Thirty minutes into the boys' basketball game Wednesday night, it looked as if Brookville would have to wait another year to win a District IX League title.

The DuBois boys' basketball team came out and punched the Raiders (19-2, 8-2 District IX League) in the mouth to start the game. The Beavers (9-13, 4-6) played tough defense, shot the lights out and didn't allow Brookville to take the lead for three quarters of the game.

This caused some concern on the Raiders' sideline.

Defense, Fedigan help Chucks down Panthers

February 15, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Defense and a career-high night by junior Alex Fedigan helped the Punxsy boys' basketball team earn a 55-42 victory over Penn Cambria Monday night that will go a long way toward solidifying a home playoff game for the Chucks.

Fedigan scored a career-best 17 points, and Punxsy held the Panthers to 21 points during the first quarter to win their eighth game this season. Punxsy not only doubled last year's win total with the victory, but it nearly clinched the No. 2 seed in the District IX Class AAA playoffs.
