ELKTON — A rough first quarter of shooting dug Elkton into a hole it was unable to climb out of as the Elks dropped their Skyline League boys basketball finale to New Hope Christian, 54-45 Saturday night at Grimsrud Gym.

The Elks shot 2-for-16 from the floor in the first eight minutes as New Hope raced to a 17-6 lead after one quarter. Elkton was 13-for-52 from the field on the night.

Cash Boe led the Elks (4-19, 1-11 North) with 23 points and a game-high 14 rebounds, and fellow freshman Trevyn Luzier hit double figures for the first time in his career with 10 points.

Yuma Nakahara had a game-high 25 points and 12 rebounds to lead New Hope (8-10, 1-9) to its first league win of the season.

Elkton will host Crow in a nonleague game Saturday at 6 p.m.
