Kristen Steiner finished with 19 points and 10 rebounds and sparked a late first-half run that helped Fallston stretch its winning streak to five with a 54-46 victory over Joppatowne in an Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference game last night.

Fallston held a 20-18 lead with just over two minutes left in the half before freshman Jess Harlee (13 points) hit a long three-pointer.

The 5-foot-10 Steiner later scored five in a row as Fallston (11-3, 5-1) got 12 of the final 14 points of the quarter for a 32-20 lead at the break.

Joppatowne (8-4, 3-3) never got closer than six again.

Joppatowne loves to run, but the Cougars slowed the pace throughout. Fallston constantly ran the clock down and made the Mariners work on defense.

Harlee added nine rebounds and three steals while Lindsay Howard helped with eight points, 11 rebounds and three blocks. Fallston also often took advantage of Joppatowne's 22 turnovers and controlled play inside.

Destinee Macklin led the foul- hampered Mariners with 19 points. Arielle Townes added 10.

C. Milton Wright 46, North Harford 42 -- Lauren Houck scored 18 points and Meredith Allen had 16 as the visiting Mustangs (9-4) edged the Hawks (6-7). Corey Donohoe had a game-high 28 points for North Harford.
