NBA Playoffs Recaps & Predictions

April 20, 2015

Eastern Conference

Game 1
Chicago Bulls 103
Milwaukee Bucks 91

The Bucks came out in the first half and played tough. The much stronger Bulls restored order in the second half behind the strong play of Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose. This was the first playoff game Rose has played in since 2011 when he tore his ACL. He scored 23 points on an efficient 9-16 shooting from the field.

Look for the Bulls to control this series. They are simply way too talented for this Bucks team to match up with them. The Bucks might steal a game, but don’t look for this series to go much longer.

Rivalry renewed

April 14, 2015

It was another installment of the Route 36 Rivalry on Monday — one that went quite well for Punxsy. Punxsy's baseball team used five different pitchers (including John Matthews, pictured here) to breeze past the Raiders on a windy day — 11-0 in six innings. Meanwhile, just up the road, Punxsy's softball team was handing the Lady Raiders a 9-0 defeat. For full coverage from the games, pick up Tuesday's edition of The Spirit.

Chucks hammer St. Marys to start season

April 2, 2015

Punxsy's Braxton Giavedoni (pictured here) put the exclamation point on a convincing win for the Chucks in their season opener against St. Marys when he hit a long, towering home run to cap a 20-5, four-inning mercy rule victory over the Dutch.

Punxsy's softball team didn't fare as well against the Lady Dutch, falling 6-1 in a five-inning, rain-shortened affair.
