Coalers start slow, then roll
DWIGHT — Coal City center Nick Peters had seen enough in the early going of Friday night's Interstate Eight Conference basketball game. While the hosting Trojans came out playing inspired ball at the start, at the same time the play by the Coalers was less than inspiring, and Peters had to stop that.
The 6-6 post player helped snap his team out of that early malaise with the first of his four blocked shots on the night towards the end of the first quarter, then came out and scored the first 10 points by his team in the second in what turned out to be a runaway win by the Coalers, 63-36, at Kresl Memorial Gymnasium.
"We came out sluggish," Peters admitted afterwards. "We weren't getting good looks and were settling on outside shots. We also were making bad passes."
