Black Diamond District teams continue at Bristol tournament

(Continued)

BRISTOL, Va. — Castlewood 43, Council 27

The Blue Devils exploded in the second half to take a 43-27 win over Council. The game was tied 20-20 at halftime but Castlewood outscored the Cobras 23-7 in the second half. Council only had two field goals in the final 16 minutes and both came in the fourth quarter.

“We’ve had several games in a row and I think we just got tired,” Council coach Patrick Wade said.

“Castlewood did a good job of making some adjustments in the second half. We missed some open layups and we only got 29 shots off tonight.”

The 1-2 punch of Tyler Austin (20 points) and Reid Edmonds (11) provided over half of the Blue Devils points. But it was the Castlewood defense that was the difference in the game. The Cobras finished with 20 turnovers.

“We played with more intensity in the second half,” Castlewood coach Doug Campbell said.

“We worked the ball better against their zone and got the shots we wanted to take, instead of settling for the shots they wanted us to take.”

Cameron Presley finished with nine points for the Cobras. Justin Mathis and Keeton Bostic added six points each in the loss.

Twin Valley kept it close early, but struggled to get shots to fall. The Panthers had only 10 points in the first half and trailed by 13 points at the half.

“The first six minutes of the game, the pace was right where we wanted it,” Twin Valley coach Brian Moore said. “But they gradually started pulling away.”

Twin Valley (4-2) struggled to hold on to the ball finishing with 27 turnovers. They didn’t have an answer for the Bearcats Nick Howard who finished with 21 points and Zach Bossard who dropped in 18 points.

No one reached double figures for the Panthers.
