Game Recap

The Musketeers traveled to Salem on Saturday to take on the Lions for the second time this season. Salem came out red hot in the first quarter, with a barrage of three-point baskets to start the game. It seemed like everyone for the Lions had a hot hand. Matt Coats was a bright spot in the first quarter, carrying most of Eastern’s scoring with seven in the period. Ridge Hall got going in the second quarter, and he and Coats ended up being the only two Musketeers to score in the first half.
The second half was much like the first. Salem continued to shoot the lights out, and their defense forced several Eastern turnovers. Ridge Hall ended the game with 22 points and 13 rebounds, which adds to his double-double count this year. Matt Coats finished the game with 11 points.
Eastern will be back in action on Thursday when they take on the Henryville Hornets.
