A three minute stretch in the third quarter was key to the Knights victory. The teams had battled on near even terms during the first 16 minutes with Coeburn getting a hard fought 25-23 halftime advantage. The Deacons began the third canto with the ball and a turn- over. However, Trevor Hileman came up with a steal, one of his five second half steals, and a bucket to tie the score at 25. However, over the next three plus minutes, the Knights went Qa a 15-4 run to take a 40-29 lead. Phillip Riner got the run started with seven straight points. He hit a pair of free throws. He then hit a trey from deep in the left corner and came back with a driving layup to push Coeburn to a 32-25 lead. :.-Bryce Lawson hit a pair of freebies to stop the run. The Blue Knights then got a trey from Andrew Adkins, a freebie and a deuce from Brett Hall and a layup by Andrew Pate to give Coeburn 40 points. The only Deacon bucket dur- ing that flurry by Coeburn was a close in shot by Tyler Phillips. Over the final 2:19 of the period, St. Paul outscored the Knights 7-5 to trail 45-36 as the final period began. Early in the final period Coeburn got five points from Pate to increase their lead to 50- 38 before the Deacons mounted a furious come back try. By the 2:26 mark of the period St. Paul had cut their deficit to seven points at 54-47. The Deacon comeback began with a David Kiser free throw. Then a Kiser steal resulted in a Corey Ellis basket. Two Trevor Hileman steals and run out baskets around an Adkins basket made the score 54 Coeburn and 47 St. Paul.

Burton used their quickness to get a 10 point, 65- :55-victory over visiting St. Paul on.Wednesday night, January 7. -': The quickness of Devon :t'atley and Jaycob Coleman who had 16 steals between them gave the young Deacons problems all night. .. With the Raiders giving special attention to the Deacons most experienced tandem of Corey Ellis and Tyler Phillips, they figured to hold the Deacons in check. However both Ellis and Phillips worked very hard to get their shots. They both turned m an outstanding effort. Phillips accounted for 15 points while Ellis:was close behind with 12. 'They were just 5 total points behind the Raiders leaders, .Coleman and Daniel Denton with 15 and 17 respectively. Sophomore Denver Fritz .... came off the bench to thro: .10 points for the Deacons. " According to Deacon head :man Patrick Damron, "We were 'a. little down at the beginning. We had played a very good game at Coeburn on Tuesday but came up two points short. However, as the game with Norton progressed, we got better." "Their Daniel Denton hit some tough shots for them," Damron said, "I thought we had good pressure on him," Damron added. Damron said that his team has to be more consistent throu- ghout the game. There are times when we lose a little intensity. Some of our young, inexperienced kids like Trevor Hileman, Bryce Lawson and Denver Fritz are just learning how to play our system and how to play against our competition.
