Basile picks up huge win over Elton; win streak now at three

ELTON -- It has been a tale of two seasons for the Basile Bearcats.
After starting the year at 1-3, Basile had reeled off two wins in a row and was looking to make it three in a row when they travelled down Highway 190 Thursday night to take on long time rival Elton High School.
The Bearcats needed a big win over the Indians to continue climbing the ladder in the playoff seeding, and boy did they get one, as Basile was able to hold off a late Elton rally and pick up a 28-26 win in the “Battle of the Bayou”.
