No. 10 Fallston made quick work of Aberdeen last night, beating the host Eagles, 56-10, in a Harford County league game.

The victory extended the Cougars' unbeaten streak to eight games -- 2-0 in county play -- and they continued to show why they are the most balanced team in the county as every player scored at least one point. Aberdeen fell to 0-3.

By halftime the Cougars led 27-2 as the Eagles could only manage a layup by Stephanie Hooks.

"We were just trying to get back on track since we hadn't played since Dec. 28," said Fallston coach Nancy Ferguson.

"As far as our focus, we had to get jump-started in the first quarter, and I don't think there has been a game where we haven't had everyone in the game."

Fallston brought in five players off the bench to start the second half, and Ferguson received quality play, especially from Courtney Benner, who hit two consecutive jumpers that pushed the lead to 39-4. Aberdeen got its only two points off free throws.

Cougars junior point guard Lori Heffley led all scorers with eight points and had four steals in one half of play. Cindy Credito and Suzy Harrison each finished with six rebounds.

"We are still trying to fine-tune things and look for a fifth starter and I thought Rachel [Simon] did a real good job tonight," said Ferguson.

In the second quarter, the Cougars hit four straight baskets -- the last a 10-footer by Jenny Weber -- that gave them a 21-2 lead. After a short jumper by Jen Cook, the Cougars built a 49-4 lead midway through the final quarter.
