‘Playing in mosquitoes instead of snow banks’

Seven miles, four quarters and 100 yards separate Hazen and Beulah this Friday for the right to claim another year of bragging rights and house the traveling Coal Bowl trophy once again. But in its 30th year, this Coal Bowl is unlike any of its predecessors.
