Recap: Glen Rose 45, Elkins 13

GLEN ROSE — Elkins had a pair of 100-yard rushers Friday night, and the Elks surpassed 200 yards through the air in their Class 3A state playoff game.

Turnovers, however, provided a recurring nightmare for Elkins, which closed out its season with a 45-13 loss to Glen Rose. The Elks threw six interceptions — two of them coming in the end zone to end scoring threats — and had another fumble inside the Beavers’ 20.

“I don’t know how many times we turned the ball over in the red zone,” Elkins coach Chad Harbison said. “We had opportunities to score, and we’ve been good at getting it in. It was just one of those nights, and it wasn’t our night.”

Elkins, which closed out the season with a 9-3 mark, also had a muffed punt to set up Glen Rose’s first touchdown and give the Beavers (11-1) a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Interceptions by Adam Day also set up a Glen Rose field goal and a touchdown, and the Beavers ended the game with their sixth interception.
