.Page 6 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES, St. Patti, VA, Thursday, January 14, 010 I I Sports Features Deacons get win at Thomas Walker by Allen Gregory while playing only three quarters their shooting touch as the St. Paul boys' basketball team sent their season's record to seven wins and one loss as they defeated Thomas Walker at the Pioneers house 70-37 on January 5. A win at Thomas Walker is always hard to come by. This margin of victory says some- thing about how aggressive these Deacons play defense as they had more than 17 steals on the game. Trevor Hileman had six steals as did Corey Ellis while big man Tyler Phillips had five. Many of those steals turned into run out baskets by the Deacons. The Deacons also worked hard on the backboards coming up with more than 34 rebounds. Phillips led the way with ten of the game. Dallas Hileman was close behind with nine while Denver Fritz and Trevor Hileman had eight and seven respectively. The Deacon defense kept the homestanding Pioneers under double digit scoring in the first and third quarters. The Deacons, perhaps suffer- ing from the long bus ride, were a little sluggish to open the game and had to struggle to get to a 10-8 lead as the opening canto came to a close. Only Phillips and Trevor Hileman were able to dent the first period's scoring column for the Deacons. Phillips had six and Hileman had four for the Deacons' ten points. The Deacons began to find second period began. That scoring touch remained the rest of the game and St. Paul was able to pull away to the easy victory. Phillips an.d Bryce Lawson were the only Deacons to reach double figures in scoring. Phillips had 18 while Lawson had 13. All eight of the Deacon players scratched the scoring ledger. SCORING: St. Paul--Edmonds 9, Ellis 6, Lawson 13, T. Hileman 6, Fritz 8, Phillips 18, Dupuie 2, D. Hileman 8. Thomas Walker--R. Scott 2, T. Scott 3, J. Yeary 2, C.

Deacon Ladies drop one to Lady Pioneers by Allen Gregory the game, the Deacons could not The third canto saw the two A late turnover leads to a two point loss to the homestanding Lady Pioneers of Thomas Walker The game, played at Thomas Walker on January 5, saw the • home team get a narrow 42-40 win. Turnovers are important in every basketball game none more important than two that took place late in this game. With about 18 seconds to go in the game that was tied at 40, the Pioneers had control of the ball but turned the ball over on a • walking call. Given a chance to close out get the job done and turned the ball over to the home team. Thomas Walker did not flub that chance as Emily Clonce hit a driving layup to get her team the win. The Deacons, as they have done several times this year, played pretty well in the first quarter as each team Was working on their first conference game. The Deacons had a three point 9-6 lead as the first period ended. However, a couple of Dea- con turnovers and missed close in shots enabled the Pioneers to take a 23-20 halftime lead. Lady Eagles thump St. Paul by Allen Gregory The Rye Cove Lady Eagle basketball team showed they were getting ready for district play as they rolled by St. Paul's Lady Deacons by a score of 43- 27 at St. Paul on Monday, January 11. The Lady Eagles have struggled in the early part of this season due to illness and injuries to key players. These players appeared to be • healthy as the Eagles had their way with the young and inexperienced Deacon team on Monday night. There was just over four minutes left in the first quarter when the Deacons' Hannah Edmonds freed herself from the constant double team to get the first Deacon basket of the game. That made the score Rye Cove 6, St. Paul 2. By the end of the first, the Deacons trailed 18-4. Freshman Kelly Arrington made the other Deacon basket. During that period the visitors were all over Edmonds and were paying very close attention to the other Deacon Rachel Evans who can put points on the board with a fair amount of consistency. The Deacons made a strong effort to get back into the game in the second quarter. By near the three minute mark of the period, the Deacons had gone on a 10-2 run and trailed by only six at 20-14. Edmonds made 8 of the 10 points in the run. However, the Deacons could not sustain the charge as Rye Cove held them to just two, Aleah Wells' free throw over the Deacons roll by by Allen Gregory Patrick Damron and his band of St. Paul Deacons ran their season's record to 8-1 with a 62- 25 win over the visiting Eagle s from Rye Cove at St. Paul on Monday, January 11. The Deacons had their in your face defense and crisp passing offense as they ran off with the easy victory. The opening quarter was nothing to write home about as the Deacons could not find the basket early on and the Eagles had trouble maintaining control of the ball. The Deacons also had several turnovers during the early going. The second quarter was a Eagles totally different story. The Deacon defense, which hotly contested every Eagle pass and shot, began to get control of the game. By halftime, the Deacons had come from a 9-8 first quarter deficit to a 33-12 lead. During the second period the Deacons had six steals and caused several other turnovers and were able to go on a 25-3 run to effectively put the game away. The patient offense with pin point passing brought about a number of iayups or very high percentage shots. The visitors did not have a player reach double figures in teams battle hard with neither one able to get the upper hand. By the third period's end, St. Paul had chopped one point off the Pioneer halftime lead. So the hard, fought game came down to the last four minutes of action and the Pioneers were able to take advantage of the breaks.

Down 24-16 as the third period began, the Eagles shut down Edmonds during the second half holding her to just two points. No other Deacon was able to put up the scoring slack.

Donna Meade - Family and Consumer Science "When In Doubt, Throw It Out"! There is no way to know if a food is still safe when it has Unit's Extension been left at room temperature (or above 40 degrees) for longer than two hours! Since you cannot see or smell most bacteria that make you sick, tasting food is risky and will not tell you if food is unsafe. For some bacteria, such as E Coli, even a tiny taste may be enough to make you sick. Depending on the food borne illness, it may take from about 1 hour to six or more weeks to get sick from contaminated food. So, when in doubt, throw it out! Food safety and quality actually begin in the grocery store: • Make the grocery store your last stop. Perishable foods should not be out of refrigeration more than two hours when the temperature is temperate, or one hour in warm weather when the temperature is above 90 F. • Make refrigerated and frozen foods your last selections in the grocery store. * Refrigerate meat and poultry immediately upon arriving home. • Keep your refrigerator and freezer door closed as much as possible when putting away groceries so the food will chill rapidly. • Purchase products before "sell-by" or "expiration" dates. • Insulated thermal bags or coolers are helpful in keeping refrigerated and frozen food cold until you get home: Bacteria grow most rapidly between 40 F and 140 F. There are two types of bacteria that affect foods: pathogenic bacteria that causes food borne illness; spoilage bacteria that cause foods to develop unpleasant tastes, odors and textures. (a) Forty (40) degrees F or lower is the recommended re- &igerator temperature to slow bacterial growth and maintain quality. Freezing occurs at 32 F; adjust refrigerator accordingly between 32 F and 40 F to prevent unwanted freezing, such as freezing milk. Zero (0) de- grees F or lower is the recom- mended freezer temperature. At this temperature, bacterial grow- th Will be stopped. However, freezing does not kill most bacteria, nor does it stop flavor changes that occur over time. Though food will be safe indefinitely at 0 F, quality will decrease the longer the food is in the freezer. The safety and quality of food is affected by how it is news , handled BEFORE t is placed in the refrigerator. \\; • Refrigerate / perishable foods so the TTAL time they're at room ten0perature is less than two hours  9r one hour in temperatures abe,re 90 F). Perishable foods inc ude: meat, poultry, fish, eggs, :ofu; dairy products; pasta, ric ,', cooked vegetables; flesh, pe led and/or cut fruits and vegetables. At room temper ture, just ONE bacterium in perishable foods could grow to 2,097,152 bacteria in seven hour,, ! • It is OK to refrigerate foods while they're ill warm. Just leave the contailer cover slightly open until the food has cooled. Refrigerate oods, no more than 2 inches I deep, in shallow containers So speed cooling. ! • Divide a large of food like a Soup or stew i smaller portions and cool shallow pans. Where foods are placed in the refrigerator has an effect on food safety and the amount of time foods may be stored for best taste. Some  general guidelines include: / • Avoid storing perishable foods, such as eggs and nilk, in the refrigerator door Storage. With the opening and clqsing of the door, the temperature of foods stored in the door storage fluctuates more than in other areas of the refrigerator. Store eggs in their carton on a shelf. • Place raw meat, poultry and seafood in a sealed container on a bottom shelf or in a meat drawer of the refrigerator to prevent their juices from dripping on and contaminating other foods. • Avoid overfilling the refrigerator. Allow room for cool air to circulate and keep foods at the correct temperature. • Store fruits in a separate refrigerator crisper drawer from vegetables. Fruits give off ethylene gas that can shorten the storage life of vegetables. Some vegetables give off odors that can be absorbed by fruits and affect their quality. Store fruits and vegetables unwashed to lengthen their storage life and maintain quality. Wash at the time of using. • As a general guideline, eat leftover foods within two days or freeze them. If you freeze foods immediately, cool them as described for refrigerated foods, before you freeze them. ' • i i | i ii i 1 ii I Motorists: Stop for any school bus loading or unloading children!
