PUNXSUTAWNEY — Despite having a disappointing regular season finale, the Punxsy Chucks football team was able to qualify for the District V-VI-VIII-IX subregional playoffs. The foe will be a familiar one for Punxsy as it will travel over the mountain to tackle undefeated District IX champ Clearfield on Friday night in a 7 p.m. kickoff.

In the new format, the Chucks (5-5) enter the AAA subregional tournament as the fourth seed. Clearfield (10-0) holds the top seed.

In the other contest, third seed Somerset (5-5) will face University Prep (5-3) as the second seed.

The two teams that win this weekend will advance to play each other the following Friday, Oct. 16.

The winner of the subregional will play the District IV champion on Nov. 23.
