PCHS basketball sweeps Golden City Eagles

Thursday, February 17, 2011

The Pierce City Eagles picked up a 62-33 over College Heights Monday night.

The Eagles led 18-9 at the end of the first quarter and 38-15 at halftime.

"We are getting closer to playing the type of ball that we were before the snow hit. Each game we get a little better," said Pierce City Head Coach Matt Street. "It was a good team win with all 11 players contributing to the win. We need to continue working on our ball pressure in the half court and running our offense. When we begin doing those things again, we will be much better."
