The Dade County High School Wolverine basketball team hit the court on Monday to start a busy week as they faced off against the Coosa Eagles in a game that was rescheduled a couple of times due to weather and COVID–19.
The game got off to a fast start but slowed midway through the quarter with the visiting Eagles taking a two-point lead at the end, 12-10.
DCHS got things going their way in the second quarter, dominating the much bigger Eagles, outscoring them 18-4 to take a 28-16 lead at the end of the first half.
Coosa looked like a different team in the third quarter, but the Wolverines fought hard and at the end of the third quarter were up 43-33.
The fourth quarter belonged to Dade as they kept the pressure on the Eagles who just could not stop the Wolverines from scoring as they came away with a 60-47 win over Coosa who dropped their second region game of the year.
David Cole led the Wolverines with 15 points followed by Everett Christiansen with 12 and Brody Cooper and Levi Moreland with 10 each.

The pace slowed in the second quarter, but DCHS fought hard and built their lead to four-points by the end of the first half, 31-27.
Defense would dominate the third quarter as Model played much better and outscored Dade 10-5 and take the lead, 37-36.
