Tigers move up one spot in ratings
Bulldogs drop to 11th in ‘A’ after hard-fought setback against EHS
ELKINS — Elkins moved up one spot in the WVSSAC playoff ratings released on Tuesday afternoon.
The Tigers improved to 4-2 after a hard-fought 39-34 win over Tygarts Valley last Friday. They are now 11th in double-A.
It was the first meeting between the Randolph County schools in varsity football.
The 5-1 Bulldogs, who suffered their first loss of the season, dropped from fourth to 11th in Class A.
Both teams — as of press time on Tuesday — are not scheduled to play this week.
The Tigers were slated to visit Class AAA, No. 2 Bridgeport and Tygarts Valley was set to host South Harrison.
But Harrison County schools were orange in Saturday’s COVID-19 metrics map.
Randolph County was gold, meaning teams must play other gold counties or in-county opponents.
Cabell Midland (AAA), Bluefield (AA) and Doddridge County (A) are rated first in their respective classes this week.
