Monday night was fairly light for county girls basketball teams, but it was a good one for two teams: Fallston and Havre de Grace.
Both teams collected road wins in UCBAC Susquehanna (lower) Division play, while Harford Christian also posted a win and John Carroll lost again in IAAM A Conference action.
Fallston, which leads the division, beat Perryville, 40-26. No individual stats were reported. The Cougars are 8-0 in league and 9-5 overall.
Havre de Grace, meanwhile, overcame an early 12-7 deficit at Harford Tech to pull away and win, 47-32.
The Warriors (4-4 league, 6-5 overall) outscored the Cobras (4-3 league, 5-6 overall) 14-2 in the second quarter to take a 21-14 lead into the half. Tech fought back in quarter three and trailed 30-28 with a quarter to play, but Havre de Grace controlled the final quarter 17-4.
Naje Dixon was the key for the Warriors, coming off the bench to score a team-high 16 points. Dixon was four-of-four from behind the three-point line and four-of-four from the free throw line. Taylor Smith added 15 points in the win.
Tech's Brianna McAllister led all scorers with 18 points.
Harford Christian's win came at Carroll Christian, 62-21. Chloe Akers scored 16 points to lead the Eagles and Kelsey Williams added 10. Grace Shanahan added nine points and seven steals.
In John Carroll's 56-32 loss at McDonogh, Rita Watson scored 14 points to pace the Patriots.
Girls basketball play on Friday night was limited and not too revealing in the way of good news, but the North Harford Hawks celebrated a big win at C. Milton Wright, while both Bel Air and John Carroll were defeated. Harford Christian also posted a win, beating visiting Harford Tech.
North Harford's win, 47-41 over the Mustangs in UCBAC Chesapeake (upper) Division play, kept the Hawks (3-2 league, 7-4 overall) near the top of the standings.
Annie Wernig led the Hawks with 18 points, seven steals and seven rebounds, while Allison Whitacre chipped in with 17 points, eight rebounds and four steals. Bailey Saneman led a tough Hawks defense, holding CMW's Emma Hahner to just two points.
Alexis Johnson led CMW with 11 points and six rebounds. The Mustangs are 2-4 league and 6-8 overall.
Eagles beat Cobras
Harford Christian's 66-34 win was highlighted by all 11 Eagles scoring. Grace Shanahan was the only Eagle in double figures with 12 points.
Bel Air (9-6 overall) traveled to St. Paul's for non-league action and fell, 58-43.
The Bobcats trailed 28-24 at the half, but were outscored 30-19 in the second half. Samantha Barnett scored 18 points for the Bobcats.
