Page 6 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES, St. Paul, VA, Thursday, December 18. 2008 ...... I " I ...... |11 Deacons defeat Clintwood 52-39- by Allen Gregory The St. Paul Deacons and their coach Patrick Damron got a 52-3,9 homecourt victory over the Clintwood Greenwave on Friday, December 12. The Wave was a bit rusty because the majority of their 12 contingent had only a few days .practice under their belts due to being involved with the very successful Wave football team that went all the way to the state finals before suffering a 28- 20 loss to Franklin County. Nevertheless the Greenies played hard and made St. Paul work for everything they got. In fact, Clintwood's Heath Counts opened the game's scor- ing with a foul shot and worked their way to an early 5-0 lead before the Deacons got rolling. 4:22 remained in the first quarter before the Deacons got on the board with a Denver Fritz layup. That bucket started the Deacons on a 14-0 mn that gave the Deacons a 14-5 lead as the first quarter came to a close. Three pointers by Tyler Phillips and Trevor Hileman keyed the run.. Both teams had trouble handling the ball as both the purple and green teams worked hard on defense. St. Paul had three turnovers and Clintwood four. By halftime the Deacons had a 13 point, 26-13 lead on the visitors. The Deacons had gotten some easy looks at the basket as they were able to use their passing game to get some layups. Corey Ellis had four first half assists as he made excellent passes to open plays under the basket. Ellis would drive the middle and draw the defense to him then make a nifty pass to an open Deacon driving the base line for an easy layup. According to Coach Patrick Damron, Clintwood played a 1- 3-1 zone in the second half and it disrupted the Deacons game. Coach Damron said the young team had worked very little in practice against that type of zone defense. He was, however, very hap- py with the way his team found other ways to score especially working to find the open man with the best shot. By the end of the third period, Clintwood trailed by nine at 37-28. With about 3:55 to go in the game they had the Deacons lead down to six at 41-35. At that point St. Paul got a free throw from Ellis and two eight foot jumpers from Phillips and returned their lead to double digits and had command of the game the rest of the way. Ellis finished the game with seven assists while Phillips had seven rebounds and three steals to .go with a game high 24 points.

Lady Deacons win over Holston 40-29 by Allen Gregory For the second time this young basketball season the Lady Deacons won over Holston. The home court victory on December 11 saw St. Paul win by 40-29. Neither team put a player in double figures. Hannah Ed- monds led St. Paul with nine while Mary Hand and Taylor Doss each tallied eight for the visitors. The Lady Cavaliers are still struggling to get their ship on the right course and annex some victories. However, at this point, they are still struggling to handle the ball and find the basket on a consistent basis. SCORING: Holston---Martin 1, Ritchie 5, Hand 8, Lyon 7, Doss 8, Hayden, Odum. St. Paul--Evans 7, Salyer 6, Edmonds 9, Crawford 7, Wells 5, N. Rose 6, M. Rose. Castlewood Blue Devils take two victories against Pound and Richlands by Jonathon Salyer The Castlewood boys' bas- ketball team hosted a round robin tournament on Thursday and Friday, December 11 and 12. Castlewood opened up the tour- nament on Thursday with a game against the Pound Wild- cats and came away with a 58- 36 victory. The Devils kept things going on Friday as they defeated the Richlands Blue Tornado by a final score of 69- 61. Castlewood 58 Pound 36 The Blue Devils jumped out early to an 11-6 first quarter lead behind balanced scoring. In the second quarter it was all Devils as they outscored Pound 16-8 to take a 27-14 lead going into halftime. The Devils kept up their good pressure in the second half and pulled away from the Wildcats. They won the third quarter by a score of 17-6 to take a 44-20 lead going into the final quarter. The Devils emptied the bench in the final quarter as the Devils saw 10 of their 13 players score in the game. Seth Justice led the way for the Devils tossing in 14 points and 11 rebounds. Ryan Meade tossed in 12 points while Zach Bush pulled down 7 rebounds. Justin Mullins led Pound with 8 points. The Castlewood boys' JV team defeated the Wildcats by a 41-23 margin.

Castlewood 69 Richlands 61 The Castlewood Blue Devils won a hard fought game on Friday defeating the much bigger Blue Tornado. The Toy- ado did not have a starter less than 6 foot tall and they also have a much larger school than Castlewood. The Devils jumped out of the gates early and led 21- 15 after one quarter of play. Justin Smith led the scoring in the first quarter tossing in 8 points. The Devils slipped some in the second quarter and only led by one point at halftime with the score standing at 34-33. The Devils used a big third quarter to pull out the win as they out- scored the Tornado 23-14 in the quarter. The Devils had all five starters score in the decisive quarter. Richlands mounted a comeback in the fourth quarter but it was not enough as Castlewood came away with the tough 69-61 victory. Justin Smith led Castlewood with 17 points. Seth Justice (12 points, 5 reb.), Ryan Meade (12 points, 6 reb 4 assists), Zach Bush (12 points, 6 reb) and Ruben Rasnick (9 points, 6 reb.) all had big games in the victory. Jacob Rife led Richlands with 15 points. The Castlewood JV team also won in their matchup with the Blue Tornado.
