Fallston, the UCBAC's lone winless boys basketball team heading into Wednesday's contests and riding one of the worst starts in team history, snapped a seven-game losing streak by topping the visiting Havre de Grace Warriors, 68-49.
In other hard court action, the Patterson Mill and Aberdeen squads earned victories Wednesday, while Joppatowne came out with a win Tuesday.
"We're an inexperienced team, to begin with," Fallston's rookie head coach Tim Lacock said. "I could see glimpses of good stuff going on every game this season, but it just wasn't coming together at once, and we lost seven games in a row. Tonight, everything clicked. Our defense and offense were both playing with patience, executing correctly. I'm really happy for the guys. You start to think, 'what can I do now, push them harder in practice?' You don't want to do that, but the guys won this all on their own."
John Markes led the Cougars, scoring 19 points, while teammates Wyatt Alexander and Jason Lawrence both netted nine points.
Havre de Grace's hot hand belonged to Lavelle McCullers, who scored a game-best 22 points.
Eagles over Mustangs
The Aberdeen Eagles knocked off the visiting C. Milton Wright Mustangs Wednesday, 72-49.
The hosts were holding a narrow 31-27 lead after two quarters.
Eric Briggs scored 19 to pace the winning side, while Deandre Henson had 14 points for Aberdeen. Mike Davenport and Jevon Hill-Gee each netted 12 points in the victory.
Mychal Stefanides had team-high totals of 13 points and five assists for CMW. Will Hazelton scored nine points and had three steals, while Logan Keys scored eight points and also racked up three steals in the loss. Matt Kline netted nine points, and fellow Mustang Sam Hahner scored four points and pulled down a team-best seven rebounds.
Huskies continue to roll
In their Wednesday night road matchup with the North East Indians, the Patterson Mill Huskies continued their habit of steam-rolling opponents, this time dispatching their hosts 75-46.
In four games this season, the Huskies have outscored their opponents, 312-149.
J.J. Butler led the way in Patterson Mill's most recent matchup, dropping 26 points on North East, while Garett Burkhead and Jay Kuhn both notched 11 points in the victory. Matt Golczewski and Mike Reed each netted eight points, while Malik Bonds posted seven points for the Huskies.
Patterson Mill led 31-25 at the half-time break.
Hawks beaten by Elks
Playing host to the Elkton Golden Elks on Wednesday night, the North Harford boys were handed a 67-46 loss by their guests.
"They wanted it more," Hawks' coach Jeff Burrows said. "They were much more aggressive than we were. We couldn't run our stuff, but we will fix it and get better."
Patriots fall to Spalding
John Carroll, hot on the heels of a huge victory over St. Frances last week, lost to the visiting Archbishop Spalding squad Tuesday night, 47-45.
