Coalers thump Panthers at Turkey Tournament
COAL CITY — It took Coal City 10 seconds to take its first lead of the season. Thirty-one minutes and 50 seconds later, the Coalers had their first blowout win.
In between, the outcome was rarely in doubt as the Coalers prevailed 55-28 in the varsity boys basketball season opener for both teams at the 2012 Coaler Turkey Tournament. They were ahead 14-5 by the end of the first quarter and 35-9 at halftime.
"We knew we had a great opportunity to come out with a lot of returning guys and three-year players and set the tone for the season," Coal City forward Nick Peters said after scoring a career-high 21 points and adding 10 rebounds. "I couldn't have told you the score would be what it was, but we felt we had the opportunity to take it to them."
