Defense, hot shooting lead Punxsy over Clearfield

PUNXSUTAWNEY — As of late, the Lady Chucks had been struggling from the field in back-to-back games against Brookville and Keystone.

In Monday's 66-24 win over Clearfield, all of the shots went Punxsy's way.

"I think playing at home with familiar surroundings gave us some confidence," Reitz said. "When you knock down the first two or three jump shots, it's a lot easier to play this game."
