With so many players contributing in a variety of ways, the Acorn Tigers were too much for the Elks of Elkins. Despite committing 13 turnovers and 14 fouls Acorn still somehow managed to rally from behind to claim a 70-67 victory over Elkins Friday Dec. 29.

The Tigers Senior Boys' basketball team proved they did not know the word quit even when they found themselves trailing the Elks by 20 points,Instead they forged ahead and battled their way back into the ball game. 

Sophomore Jeremiah Swint (#4) put on a stellar performance, scoring 24 points and pulling down six rebounds. Swint went four for nine from beyond the arch, while as a team they only shot 33 percent from three-point land.

Senior point guard Cross Hughes also turned in an impressive performance making nine of his 19 attempts to score 28 against Elkins. Hughes also finished with 13 rebounds, four assists and four steals, making him a menace in all aspects to the Elks. 

Junior small forward Leo Jacinto also chipped in 7 points off 11 attempts, as well as five assist, eight rebounds and five steals of his own. Jacob Moore (#13) contributed 5 points, six rebounds and a steal of his own while point guard Brad Lyle had 6 points and two steals himself.
