Last night was a bittersweet evening for the Sr High Waldron Bulldogs. Playing in their last home game until next season, the Bulldogs battled the Elks of Elkins but ended taking a loss in both games. Waldron did have something to celebrate though as they took time to recognize their basketball, cheer, and band seniors just before tip-off.
The Bulldog boys’ team always plays with such great cohesiveness while keeping the game moving at a fast pace. Last night was no different as the (9-4) Bulldogs rallied to beat the (12-1) Elks. After an intense battle, Elkins pulled ahead taking the lead and ended the game 72-66. In their last game before District, Waldron will put it all on the line as they look to disarm the (3-10) Greenland Pirates.
In the girls’ game, the (2-11) Lady Bulldogs had a difficult time holding off the (6-7) Lady Elks. Although Waldron fought hard until the final buzzer, Elkins took the win 58-32. In this Friday’s match, the Lady Bulldogs plan to make the (6-7) Lady Pirates walk the plank. Waldron will play Greenland in their final conference game on Friday, February 8 at 6 p.m.
