ST. MARYS — The Punxsy girls' basketball team scored just two points during the first quarter of a game that lacked offense Friday night during a 38-24 loss to Elk County Catholic.

Punxsy quickly fell behind 13-2 after the first quarter and were constantly playing from behind.

"We didn't shoot the ball real well and didn't rebound," Punxsy head coach Randy Reitz said. "We need to do a better job of playing a complete game."

The Lady Crusaders' lead grew to 20-8 by halftime before they outscored Punxsy 13-11 during the third quarter.

"I just think Elk County's pressure bothered us throughout us the game," Reitz said.
