The senior boys Elecs opened the series with a 68-53 win over Weyburn. The senior girls then dropped an 82-70 game against Weyburn.

ECS outscored Weyburn 138-135 in the first two games.

The final two games in the series will be Feb. 13 in Estevan. The senior girls play at 5:30 p.m. and the senior boys play at 7:30 p.m.

The McLeod Series is a best-of-four showdown between the two schools each year. If each team wins twice, then the tie-breaker is point differential.

ECS is looking to win the McLeod Series for the fourth time in the last five years.
