ELGIN — Elgin’s Jake Burgess and Enterprise’s Damon Greenshields went head-to-head in Elgin Tuesday night.  Greenshields won the individual battle, but the Huskies won the war.

The junior connected on five 3-point shots, with three coming in the third quarter.

Greenshields dominated the scoring for Enterprise, finishing with a game-high 29 points.

The Outlaws used their fast-break offense to build a 14-11 lead after one quarter.

It was all Elgin after that. Carson Reid added 13 points. Gavin Christenson and Gage Little each scored 10 points.
