Bison 'bull' over Punxsy to earn D-9 title

November 1, 2014

Pictured here is Punxsy linebacker Blake Bizousky keeping his eye on the ball before intercepting a pass to turn over the Clearfield Bison offense early in the second half of the District 9 Championship game Saturday at DuBois.

The Punxsy defense shut out Clearfield in the second half, but it wasn't enough to overcome a 35-0 halftime deficit, and the Bison cruised to the championship behind a strong running attack.

Punxsy VB falls in epic battle for D-9 title

Unfortunately for Punxsy, St. Marys earned the title to eliminate Punxsy from the postseason.

Karns City too much for Punxsy JVs

October 27, 2014

Punxsy's JV football team had a rough night Monday against Karns City, as the Gremlins coasted to a 41-0 victory.

Punxsy's Jacob Weaver, pictured above, was able to break a few big runs and ended up with almost 50 on the night.

Punxsy's schedule slows down this week, but tonight is highlighted by the volleyball team's opening-round match against Karns City. The Lady Chucks are the top seed, while the Gremlins are the No. 4 seed. The game starts at 6:30 p.m. in Punxsy.

Turnovers haunt Chucks in loss to Gremlins

October 25, 2014

On Friday, the Chucks fell to the undefeated Karns City Gremlins 43-16. Turnovers were a problem for Punxsy, as the Chucks gave Karns City the ball four times.

Next week, the Chucks will play a rare Saturday game at DuBois when they take on the Clearfield Bison for the District IX AAA crown. Kickoff will be at 1 p.m.
