Thursday's much-anticipated girls basketball rematch between Aberdeen and host Joppatowne turned out to be a lopsided 82-40 win for the visiting Eagles, who stayed unbeaten in the Chesapeake Division of the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference.
Aberdeen, 19-0, division champions at 10-0 and ranked No. 1, used its relentless full-court press to force the Mariners (16-4, 9-2) into numerous turnovers throughout the first half. The Eagles led 31-8 after one quarter, 45-21 at the half and 68-38 after three quarters.
Junior center Bri Jones dominated in the paint, scoring 35 points and seemingly grabbing as many rebounds.
Lakeia Hayden, with 13 points, was the only other Eagle to score in double figures, while Shakara Head was more than half of the Joppatowne offense, scoring 26.
"They all meshed together, they all played well tonight; it was a good win," Aberdeen coach Stacy Liles said.
Joppatowne coach Mike Harris pointed to Wednesday's missed day of practice as a problem. "Wish we'd been able to practice yesterday; we knew what was coming," he said.
No. 9 Glenelg 53, Marriotts Ridge 35: Emily Russo scored a game-high 22 points and Sam Heisig added 18 to power the visiting Gladiators (19-1) past the Mustangs.
Glenelg led 30-19 at the half.

Calvert Hall 72, McDonogh 55: Justi Beck had 23 points to lead the visiting Cardinals (10-15, 5-9 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference) past the Eagles (14-12, 6-10).
