Lady Colts earn road victory

ELKINS — Elkins ran its winning streak to 10 straight games with a 4-1 victory over Robert C. Byrd Thursday night in Big 10 Conference play at EHS field.

The Lady Tigers (10-1-0) took a 2-1 lead into the intermission on a goal by Addy Cogar and self goal committed by the Lady Flying Eagles.
