RIVALRY NIGHT: Atlee, Hanover Split in First Doubleheader of Season...

The Hanover boys and Atlee girls were victorious at these archrivals met for the first of two regular season matchups tonight at Atlee High School.

The Raider girls won their second game in a row after a slow season start, defeating Hanover 51-41.  Atlee next plays the weekend after Christmas in the annual Boo Williams Holiday Tournament in Hampton Roads.

In boys action, Jalen Elliott poured in 33 points and Cutch Ellis added 21 as the Hawks improved to 5-2, ending a two-game skid with an 83-68 win over the Raiders. It was Hanover's first win since a victory eight days ago over another county rival, Patrick Henry.

Brian Miller almost matched Elliott point for point with 30 to lead the Raiders, who, after a 2-0 start, have now lost four straight.

Both teams will participate in the 2013 Henrico Holiday Hoops Tournament beginning a week from today. Atlee will open the tourney against host Henrico at 2:30pm while Hanover will face Potomac, one of the top teams in the state in 5A classification, at approximately 7:15pm.

NOTE: HCS Media Network will provide LIVE coverage of the entire first round of the 2013 Henrico Holiday Hoops Tournament, including the two games listed above, on Thursday December 26th beginning at 2:15pm ET at the link at the top of the page HERE at HanoverCountySports.net!
