With the win, Aberdeen moved to 3-4 overall, and 2-1 against Chesapeake opponents. Bel Air fell to 3-4 overall, and 1-3 in Chesapeake Division games.
Leading the Eagles to the victory was quarterback Eric Briggs, who tossed three touchdown passes.
"We played pretty well tonight," Aberdeen coach Johnny Brooks said. "Bel Air plays hard, and leaves everything out on the field. I think we would have had some more points if we hadn't had trouble with fumbled snaps. We fumbled on snaps three times tonight, and that cost us some momentum. That same thing happened when we lost to Perryville, and when we lost to Elkton, too. We need to work on that."
