No. 12 Old Mill 56, Meade 48: Avion Robinson scored 13 of his game-high 21 points in the second half to help the host Patriots (13-0) beat the Mustangs (9-4),

Old Mill was coming off a win over previously unbeaten Glen Burnie on Friday.

The Patriots opened the second half on a 9-2 run and took the lead for good after the teams were tied at 22 at the half following five ties and nine lead changes.

"Last year, we won the first game by just three, but then they came in here and blew us out," Robinson said. "We were finishing, hitting our free throws and taking good shots" in the second half.
