Trojans blast Imps


Defense was the story for Eddie Gray and the Garner Trojans on Monday night at Trojan Coliseum as they hammered long time rival the Cary Imps 93-34.

Garner (4-0) got out to a 9-2 lead before the Imps called their first timeout of the game but the stoppage of play did little to slow down the men of Troy as they raced out to a 25-4 lead after the opening quarter.

Cary (1-4) couldn't stop the Trojans in the second quarter as Cameron Redd stole the show scoring seven of his 13 points in the second stanza and sent Garner to a 45-8 halftime lead.

The second half was more of the same as Garner took a 66-15 lead after three thanks to Gavin Wilson, who in his first game since football season scored six of his 12 points in the third. Larry Richardson helped the cause scoring seven of his game high 14 in the third.

As the final stanza came closing down, everyone on the Garner roster saw playing time and helped lead the Trojans to the 93-34 lead.
