Bench play sparks Tigers over Mountaineers

Harman boys and girls fall at home to Berkeley Springs

CLARKSBURG — Luke Jackson and Mitchell Price both came off the bench to score in double figures as Elkins cruised past Liberty, 70-37, Saturday in Big 10 Conference action.

Jackson finished with a game-high 14 points, hitting four 3-pointers, while Price chipped in with 10. Peyton Isner also added eight points off the bench.

“Our bench did a great job of pushing us in the second quarter,” Tigers coach Amrit Rayfield said. “We also continued to take care of the ball and shot over 60 % from the floor.”

Elkins led 12-11 after one quarter, then outscored the Mountaineers, 22-12, in the second to build a 34-23 cushion at the intermission break.

The Tigers broke the game open in the third to build a commanding 50-30 cushion entering the fourth frame.

Brayden Davis also hit three 3-pointers to net nine points in the win, while Blake Harris had six assists and five rebounds and Dre Owens five assists.

“We definitely shared the ball well,” Rayfield added. “On our 29 baskets, we had assists on 23 of them, which was a good sign.

“We continue to get better each game.”

Cole Holden led Liberty with 12 points.

Elkins, which is now 2-6 overall and 1-3 in Big 10 games, will take to the road twice this week, visiting Fairmont Senior on Wednesday and Class AA, No. 6 Robert C. Byrd on Friday.
