The Punchers played host to the visiting Eagles of Johnson City this past Monday evening. This would be the last of the regularly scheduled district games before the district tournament. In their prior meeting the boys from Johnson City outscored the Punchers for the win, but the Punchers bounced back this go-round and ended up the victors.
The Punchers would outscore the Eagles 19-13 in the first half, tack on a decisive 13-7 run in the 3rd period, then finish out with a 24-40 win. The Punchers would have six players score, two in double figures and a good overall team win.
