PUNXSY PILES ON AFTER SUDDEN VICTORY

Staff Writer

After the suspense built through two scoreless 40-minute periods and two sudden-victory, 15-minute overtime periods, the AAA boys’ soccer District 9 semi-final between Punxsy and St. Marys came down to penalty kicks. And even the standard five rounds of that wasn’t enough to settle it, as seven kickers took to the line. In that seventh round, Punxsy’s Chandler Emhoff (who is in this picture, though at the bottom of the celebratory dog pile) buried the game-winner to push Punxsy into next week’s D-9 title game.
