Elkins Gets Dominant Sectional Win

On Tuesday night, the Elkins Tigers faced the Liberty Mountaineers in the opening round of the Region 2 Section 2 sectional tournament. It was a tight game to open up with no one really gaining a lead with Elkins ending the quarter with a three point lead. The Elkins defense really shined in the second quarter by only allowing 7 points in the quarter and went into the locker room at halftime up 35-18. Liberty showed a little more fight in the third but still got outscored. By the time the fourth quarter started the game was pretty much decided as Elkins moved on to the sectional championship game with a final score of 60-40. Watson led all scoring with 16 points. Dodd led the Mountaineer scoring with 11 points. The Tigers will face Lincoln for a chance to host a regional championship game on Thursday, March 2nd.
