Fallston adds Susquehanna crown

The C. Milton Wright boys basketball team closed outs its UCBAC Chesapeake Division season with a win Wednesday night, beating visiting Patterson Mill, 69-48.

Imran Hussain (five assists) poured in 27 points to lead the Mustangs (4-8, 8-13), while Brett Lindsey added 14 points and Jack Van Syckle netted 12. Van Syckle also added eight rebounds and six blocks.

Defensively, Ian Fink made four steals for the Mustangs, who led 34-21 at the half.

The Huskies (3-9, 6-12) were led by Rashawd Clowney's 20 points, and Nick Cress added 10 points.

Bobcats beat Tigers

Bel Air (11-3, 11-8) hosted and beat Rising Sun (4-10, 6-12) Wednesday night in a tight Susquehanna Division game, 57-52.

Jon Scott led Bel Air with 21 points and six rebounds. Devin Anderson added 13 points and five assists, while Jamario Sampson had eight points and seven boards. Finn Gottschalk also contributed six points and nine rebounds. Bel Air led at the half, 30-25.

Hawks beat Panthers

North Harford (7-6, 9-11) was also in the win column Wednesday night, defeating visiting Perryville (3-9, 5-10), 63-51, in Susquehanna play.

The Hawks were up five at the half and 24 in the fourth on Senior Night. Senior Allen lackey, the team manager a year ago, started off the scoring with a bucket.

Sam Cornelius led with 22 points, while Jake Helewicz scored 12. Paul Keeney added 11 points, and Zach Helewicz finished with five points, 10 assists and four steals.

Eagles beat Mariners

With the Chesapeake Division boys basketball title locked up, the Aberdeen Eagles took their 12-game win streak to Joppatowne Tuesday night, where the Mariners were trying to right the ship on Senior Night.

Aberdeen (11-1, 16-5) earned the division win, beating Joppatowne (8-4, 18-4), 65-60.

"It was extremely important, because you don't want to back into the playoffs and we don't look at records, we just want to win," Aberdeen head coach Johnny Brooks said.

Aberdeen senior Myles Douglas scored five points early to push Aberdeen out to a 10-5 lead. Both teams struggled to find solid offense in the first quarter, but things started to pick up when Joppatowne's Jordan Meads stole an inbounds pass and beat the buzzer with a layup. That closed the first quarter with Aberdeen ahead, 14-11.

It was Meads' basket early in the second quarter that put Joppatowne up, 19-18, but the Eagles' 14-5 run to end the half sent Aberdeen to the locker room with a 32-24 lead. Ishaun Bryant (10 points, 11 rebounds) scored all four of his second quarter points in the final 20 seconds.

The teams traded threes to start the third quarter, and it was the three-ball that put Joppatowne back ahead. Montrell Horsey's first three-pointer pulled the Mariners to within a basket and his second one gave the Mariners a 40-39 lead. Tyon Nordine added a layup and the lead was three, 42-39.

Aberdeen, however, used a three-point shot from Jayden Stevens and a layup from Douglas to sneak back ahead, 44-42, but Horsey sank a buzzer-beater to knot the score up at 44 all.

Midway through the final quarter, Joppatowne slipped ahead, 53-51, forcing Aberdeen to call timeout. Out of the timeout, Douglas (24 points, nine boards) took over. Douglas shot and made two straight three-point baskets and added a layup for eight straight points and an 61-55 Aberdeen lead.

"It was just in the flow of the game, I felt like my team needed me," Douglas said of his play. "I wasn't really on the whole game, but I just tried to get it on, get to the basket a couple of times in a row and that would open up my jumper and after one, I tried another one to see if it would go down."

Horsey (26 points) came right back with a three, but Aberdeen senior Jayden Saddler (12 points, 11 assists, seven rebounds) made four consecutive free throws to ice the win.

"They know what's expected of them, those two (Douglas and Saddler) put the work in, their gym rats, like I said before, they're always in the gym and it's expected of them and I can tell them, I don't expect anything less than they actually do and be honest with them," Brooks said.

Meads finished with 14 points for the Mariners, while DeAnthony Creighton netted nine.

Cougars win Susquehanna

Fallston (12-2, 18-4) claimed the Susquehanna Division title Tuesday, beating visiting Bo Manor (2-10, 4-15), 65-45.

It is the Cougars' first UCBAC boys basketball division championship. The Cougars led at half, 32-23.

The Cougars had 12 players in the scoring column, but only Brady McMaines reached double figures with 10 points.

"A great way to end the season for the seniors. They've worked so hard for this all year," Cougars head coach Brian Hulka said. "Their hustle and unselfishness really sets the tone for the team. I'm so happy they now have a division title to show for their efforts."

Warriors beat Indians

Havre de Grace (14-6) also finished Susquehanna play 12-2, but Fallston owns the tie-breaker over the Warriors.

The Warriors beat visiting North East (2-10, 5-14), 64-60, on Senior Night.

It was senior Kenny Sumpter who led the win with 31 points, while Caprice Butler added 12 points and nine rebounds.

Rams beat Elks

Edgewood (8-4, 14-6) also celebrated Senior Night with a win, defeating visiting Elkton (1-9, 7-11), 87-60, in Chesapeake play.

Senior Ryan Burgess led the Rams with 14 points, seven rebounds, one assist and three steals. Fellow senior Jahlil Scott added 11 points, two rebounds and two steals.

Rayshod Hooper added 13 points, six rebounds and one assist and Civon Edwards had 11 points and two rebounds. Tiare Waldon finished with nine points, eight rebounds, nine assists, five steals and one block.

Tech wins on road

Harford Tech (15-4) won at Manchester Valley, 62-60, in non-league play Tuesday night.

Tech senior guard Darius Dangerfield hit a driving layup with three seconds left to give Tech the win. Dangerfield finished with 20 points.
