Elizabethton drops pair in junior varsity games

By Ivan Sanders

The Elizabethton boys and girls junior varsity teams must have felt like Custer at the Battle of Bull Run as Dobyns-Bennett scalped the Cyclones in both contest.
   The JV Lady Cyclones were defeated in a narrow contest 38-35 after fighting back to take a 24-22 lead after three periods.
   Valneesha Redd paced the Cyclones with 14 while Valerie Kauffeld collected 9 for Coach Harry Farthings squad. Jordan Crowe canned two big treys in the fourth to give EHS a shot at victory in the closing minutes.
   In the boys contest, the undefeated Indian JV squad remained perfect at 24-0 for the season as they methodically dismantled the Cyclones 67-43.
   Eleven Indians scored at least one bucket in the game and were paced by Dustin Gaines with 12.
   Brad Brown had a tremendous game for the Cyclones as he came off the bench to pump in 11 big points on the night. Adam Turley paced the Cyclones with 14 and Michael Porter connected for 10.
