The Estevan Comprehensive School (ECS) Elecs senior boys and girls basketball teams hold a slim advantage in the McLeod Series with the Weyburn Comprehensive School Eagles.
The first two games of the annual four-game showdown were played Wednesday night in Weyburn.
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.
