Clawing Their Way To Victory: Tigers VS RCB Leads To Season Section Title

On Thursday night, Elkins tried to bounce back after their blowout loss to Fairmont Senior against the Robert C. Byrd Eagles. Early in the game it seemed they were still in a slump from the Senior game as they were down a few early. The Tigers were able to re-find their footing and bounce back to take the lead with a buzzer beater three to end the first. The Eagles were still sticking around as the Tigers only had a 34-31 lead into halftime. The battle still continued into the third but Elkins was still pulling away slightly. In the fourth, Elkins was able to ice the game and get the win 70-59. Thomason led scoring with 29 points. Harper led the Tigers scoring with 19 points. The Tigers improved to 7-4 and are back to action on January 17th to face Grafton. With that win, Elkins won the AAA Region II Section II regular season title for the second straight season. The Tigers will get home court advantage in the Sectional Tournament. The section also features Liberty (Harrison), Lincoln and Robert C. Byrd.=
