At times this season, the inability to score over long stretches has hurt the Century girls basketball team. Last night against Frederick County's Urbana, it was a sizable drought in each half that doomed the host Knights in a 51-43 loss.

The team, in its first varsity season, has shown maturity and clinched a tie for the Carroll County title. But shooting woes continue to be a problem.

The Knights (11-7, 7-6 Central Maryland Conference) shot 24 percent from the field over the first three quarters. They hit one field goal in the game's first 6:15, falling behind 9-2, then went without a basket for more than seven minutes in the second half, as Urbana built its lead to 41-26.

Urbana (16-4, 13-1) clinched a share of the CMC championship with the win. It was the second time this season the Hawks defeated the Knights.

Forward Jessica Mills led all scorers with 17 points.
