COUNCIL, Va. --A little defense went a long way on a cold night for Twin Valley.
Twin Valley completed a sweep of Council in Crooked Road Conference play Thursday night at Council Elementary School. In the boys nightcap the Panthers forced 22 turnovers in 48-38 win over the Cobras.
The Lady Panthers pulled away in the second half to a 67-44 win over the Lady Cobras in the varsity girls contest.
Tayten Sykes came up with seven steals and Stephen Mullins blocked 11 shots as the Panthers escaped an upset bid by the Council boys.
Sykes had three steals in the fourth quarter, when Twin Valley forced four turnovers in five possessions and got its first double-digit lead of the night, 42-32 with three minutes remaining.
"We've been a Jekyll and Hide team this year," Twin Valley coach Matthew Baldwin said. "We haven't had any consistency all year.
"We picked it up in the second half and played a little bit harder. The shots weren't falling tonight, we were just glad to come out of here with a win tonight."
Sykes finished with 13 points and Tanner Wagner dropped in a game-high 15 for the Panthers.
David D. Boyd posted a double-double with 13 points and 14 rebounds.
Andrew Gobble led the Cobras with 15 points.
"The tempo was where we needed it," Council coach Jeremy Ratliff said. "It could have been a lot closer there at the end if we had just made a lot more free throws."
Council made just 3-of-9 free throws to open the second half when Twin Valley made a key run.

Sykes 13, Wagner 15, Shortridge 8, Payne 2, Mullins 4, McClanahan 3,
