Milton Wright was handed a 10th seed, and traveled to play seventh-seeded Towson on Thursday, while eighth-seeded Aberdeen stayed at home Thursday, hosting the ninth-seeded Patapsco in the opening round.
The 2A East District VII Sectional competition is packed with Harford County talent, as five local teams will be gunning for a spot in the regional final.
