On Friday night, the Rams beat the Eagles, 61-46, in the latest renewal of one of Harford County's historic basketball rivalries.

"We had nothing to lose tonight," Rams head coach Austin Hill said. "We've been thought of as the little brother in Harford County for so long, and we want to get past that image. This is the first time Edgewood has beaten Aberdeen in a conference game in, I think, seven years. Everything came together tonight. The defense was really sharp, and we came away with a big win."

Harrison and Thomas Dillard led the winning side with matching 14-point performances. Rolle had 13 points and Williams scored 12 for Edgewood.

Eric Briggs was Aberdeen's top scorer with 15 points, while Mike Davenport netted 12 points in the loss.

Huskies over North East

The Patterson Mill boys beat the visiting North East Indians, 62-20, Monday night.

After limiting their guests to dozen points in the first half, the Huskies, who led 41-12 heading into the third quarter, surrendered just eight points in the second half.

Mike Reed scored 18 points to lead the Huskies, while Garett Burkhead netted 16 points. Malik Bonds scored 10 points for Patterson Mill and teammate Jay Kuhn had five points.

Harford Christian wins back-to-back games

The Harford Christian Eagles won their second game in as many days Friday, edging the host-team Frederick Christian Academy team, 55-51.

Luke Steelman paced the winning side, scoring 19 points, while Vince Wilson netted 10 points and Travis Henderson scored nine.

"Finding ways to win on the road is key for our team," Eagles' head coach Richard Westerlund said. "I am very happy with our team's progress thus far in the season. We're looking to continue to get better every day."

One night earlier, the Eagles topped the visiting Mt. Airy Christian Lions, 55-53, in overtime.

Down by five in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter, the Eagles knocked down five free throws, including three of four on a double technical foul charged to the Lions' head coach, to tie things up and force overtime.

With less than a minute remaining in the first extra period and trailing by five points once again, the Eagles' Steelman hit two free throws, which were followed by a turnover and a game-tying three-pointer from Henderson. After another Lions turnover, their 44th of the game, the Eagles' Nathan Good hit a layup to give the Eagles a 55-53 advantage and seal up the Harford Christian victory.

"To win a game like this despite our shooting, and digging ourselves out of two five-point holes, I'm very proud of my guys," Westerlund said. "We really showed some resiliency tonight. This was a great win for the program."
