Graham, Major lead Woodlawn Girls basketball

January 26, 1991|By Rich Scherr

Erin Graham scored 22 points and Glenda Major added 21, as host and No. 8 Woodlawn (13-0, 13-0) pulled away down the stretch to defeat Catonsville (13-2, 12-1), 67-45, in a Baltimore County 3A-4A League game last night.

The game remained close until late in the first half when Catonsville ran into foul trouble. Center Amy Evans picked up her third personal late in the half and Comets' coach Dennis Quinby sent her replacement to the scorer's table. But before he could make the substitution, Evans was called for a charge, her fourth personal.

"I think it pumped up our girls psychologically," said Woodlawn co-coach Mary Duckworth. "When [Evans] picked up her third, it surprised me that she didn't come right out. With her gone, though, it changed their offense in that their guards had more pressure to shoot."

Woodlawn was quick to take advantage. The Warriors scored the last four points of the half to go up, 26-22, then scored nine of the first 13 points in the second half, primarily on layups, to increase the lead to 35-26.

Woodlawn point guard Glenda Major picked up her fourth foul at the end of the third quarter, but with Major still running the offense, Woodlawn continued to expand its lead. Graham made it 53-41 on a fast-break layup with 4 minutes, 1 second to play.

Elsewhere, Kara Meisner and Leslie Service each scored 14, as visiting Glenelg (10-3, 4-2) stunned No. 2 Oakland Mills (14-1, 5-1), 50-49, in double overtime, in a Howard County League game. Glenelg rallied from a nine-point halftime deficit.
