    Perry Central committed nine turnovers in the first half and Boonville converted five of them into fast-break layups to build a 32-20 lead.

  • Colts fans, other teams cheated...

    Many Perry Countians are Indianapolis Colts football fans, and some of them are understandably irate at Colts Coach Jim Caldwell’s benching his starters early in the third quarter against the New York Jets Dec. 27.

    The Colts, who were 14-0 and had a chance to join the 1972 Miami Dolphins as the only team to go undefeated through the regular-season and playoffs, led only 15-10 early in the third quarter when Caldwell benched all of his key starters, including superstar quarterback Peyton Manning.

    Both teams were cold in the first half: Tell City was 4 for 22 from the field and Perry Central was 7 for 21 with 13 turnovers.

     

    Tell City still trailed by only two points, 26-24, after Ashley Fella hit a 12-foot baseline jumper with 21⁄2 minutes left in the third quarter.
