ELKINS — With the Area 5 regular-season title secured, Elkins Post 29 will now look to gain some momentum entering postseason play.

Elkins was slated to visit Moorefield Post 64 on Wednesday evening but that game was canceled due to the weather, creating a scheduling change.

Post 29 will now entertain Fairmont Post 17 at 7 p.m. today at Robin Harvey Memorial Field before battling Romney Post 91 at 5 p.m. Friday at Potomac State College in Keyser.

An Area 5 matchup at 5 p.m. Saturday against Summersville will take place at home, followed by a doubleheader against visiting Moorefield at 2 p.m. on Sunday.

The Area 5 tourney will get underway on Wednesday.

Elkins and Summersville will be joined by Buckhannon Post 7 and Weston Post 4 in the double-elimination tournament.

The winner will advance to the state tournament, which takes place July 31-Aug. 3 at Potomac State College.
