Senior Leon Williams scored 21 points to lead eighth-ranked Cardinal Gibbons to a 68-55 victory over No. 13 Calvert Hall in Towson in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference last night.

The Crusaders (16-3, 4-3) won their fourth straight after suffering a one-point overtime loss to third-ranked Archbishop Spalding 11 days ago.

Williams did most of his damage in the first and third quarters. The center helped Cardinal Gibbons open a commanding 22-6 lead in the opening quarter and stepped it up in the third period after Calvert Hall (13-5, 2-4) threatened to tie the score.

The Cardinals denied Williams the ball for much of the second quarter and outscored the Crusaders 20-9 to pull within five by halftime.

But Williams went to work again in the third and the Crusaders were never again in jeopardy, leading by as many as 20 in the final quarter.

Brett Foelber scored 19 points and Pat Grace added 12 for the Crusaders, who remain percentage points behind third-place St. Frances in the A Conference standings.

"We were just trying to maintain our position [in the A Conference standings] and, hopefully, we can make a move," Cardinal Gibbons coach Bob Flynn said.

No. 4 St. Frances 51, St. Maria Goretti 50: The Panthers held on after the Gaels nearly erased a 12-point, second-half deficit in Hagerstown.

Kevin Brashears' desperation attempt at the buzzer for Goretti was off the mark.

Gordon Brown scored 12 of his game-high 20 points in the second half to lead the Panthers (13-4). Brashears and Jake Hume each scored 10 points for the Gaels.

No. 7 Glen Burnie 74, Northeast 44: The host Gophers (10-1) routed the Eagles in an Anne Arundel County game behind eight points and 10 rebounds from senior center Brandon Albert. Reserve center Dave Brown added 12 points, eight rebounds and seven blocked shots.

No. 12 Woodlawn 84, Kenwood 28: The visiting Warriors (7-3) surrendered just 11 second-half points. Senior guard Lance Fuller paced Woodlawn with a game-high 18 points, while junior forward Jason Goode scored 13.

No. 14 River Hill 90, Reservoir 37: Rogers Barnes scored all 17 of his points in the first half to power the host Hawks (9-1) past the Gators (0-10).

No. 17 Old Mill 67, Meade 58: Senior guard Kevin Barnes scored 17 to help the host Patriots (9-2) stop a two-game losing streak. Old Mill outscored the Mustangs 20-7 in a pivotal third quarter.


No. 11 McDonogh 47, Mercy 39: A 14-2 run in the fourth quarter was the difference for the Eagles (12-3), as they escaped the host Magic (2-7). Sophomore center Sam Frost had 11 points and 13 rebounds for McDonogh.

No. 12 Institute of Notre Dame 57, Bryn Mawr 37: Junior forward Chandrea Jones scored 31 points, 14 in the third quarter, as the Indians dominated the second half and won big at Bryn Mawr. The Mawrtians (7-9) committed 26 turnovers and scored just 13 second-half points.

Senior forward Andrea Dodrill led Bryn Mawr with 14 points.
