BATTLE CREEK — Missed opportunities in the third quarter cost the Elgin Public-Pope John Wolfpack girls in the opening round of the C2-9 Sub-District Basketball Tournament.
Playing Tuesday night at Battle Creek High School, the Wolfpack fell behind in the third quarter and lost 55 to 47 to Atkinson West Holt.
Leading 27 to 24 to start the second half, the Wolfpack couldn’t contain West Holt’s inside game as they opened the second half with a 10 to two run to take a 34 to 29 lead. The Wolfpack’s only points during the run came on a field goal by Jessica Heithoff at the 6:53 mark.
The Wolfpack had several opportunities in the next minute to close the margin but they missed five of six free throws.
