B-U, Elkins to try again today

Buckhannon-Upshur and Elkins will attempt to get their Class AAA, Region II semifinal contest in the books today at Elkins Middle School after being postponed on Thursday due to poor weather conditions.

Game time is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.

The Bucs (18-11) enter the game on a roll, capturing seven of their last eight games, including two wins over Lewis County in sectional action.

“We’ve been hitting the ball pretty good,” B-U coach Tom Hasbrouck said. “If we continue to do that, we should be alright.”

Megan Williams is expected to take the mound for the Bucs, who defeated Elkins in both regular-season meetings by scores of 10-2 and 9-1.

The 9-14 Tigers, who defeated Hampshire last week to win their first sectional title in school history, are expected to counter with senior Michaela Lewis-Lambert on the hill.

Today’s victor will face either Musselman or Jefferson in the regional final on Thursday.

In other regional semifinal action on Thursday, Tygarts Valley lost to South Harrison 15-7, and Moorefield defeated Pendleton County to advance to the regional finals.
