ELIZABETHTOWN -- Sometimes, the difference in a game is at the foul line.

That was exactly the case Tuesday evening for Westport.

The Eagles shot 16-of-22 from the line on their way to a 74-51 victory over Elizabethtown-Lewis in Mountain & Valley Athletic Conference boys' basketball action.

Westport outscored the Lions by 11 points from the charity stripe, but also took advantage of their depth to come away with the win.

Tanner Carrol, Bolster McKinley and Nathan Gay scored 17 points each for the Eagles, who remain undefeated at 8-0 this season.

"They are a very balanced team," E'town-Lewis head coach Ralph Holzhauer said. "They have beaten us twice now, but last time it was by 36. We didn't do much of anything right in that game."

The Lions cut the lead to just six points after the third, but couldn't come all the way back.

Derrick Ratliff paced the Lions with 23 points.
