Lori Heffley finds herself in a position that she has been ready for since she was a freshman -- running the Fallston girls basketball team at point guard.In leading the No. 13 Cougars to a 5-0 start this season, Heffley has emerged as the player that coach Nancy Ferguson always has anticipated her to be, averaging 15.3 points, six assists and 6.3 steals a game.All of those numbers are significantly up from a year ago when Heffley struggled in every part of her game. She always has put a lot of pressure upon herself to play well, this year being no different, and a great work ethic along with some improvements in the off-season have helped her put last season behind her."

C. Milton Wright was the last Harford County team to defeat Fallston in girls basketball, and that was 31 games and more than two years ago.Last night, an undermanned Wright team, playing at home, almost did it again, getting within 57-55 inside of the final 25 seconds.From there Lori Heffley, one of three senior starters for Fallston, made two free throws, Rachel Simon added two more, and Heffley scored at the buzzer for a 63-55 victory.No. 4 Fallston (14-1, 9-0) had won nine in a row; unranked Wright (12-6, 8-2)

Three seniors on the No. 5-ranked Fallston girls basketball team are determined this year's season will have a different ending than the past three. The ultimate goal: a state championship.It is not as though this group and ninth-year head coach Nancy Ferguson have not been there before. In order, their season-ending losses came in the state championship game and two successive state semifinals.Seniors Candy Credito, Lori Heffley and Jenny Weber were a part of all those teams (a fourth, Suzy Harrison, is out this year because of back surgery)

Fallston played well defensively but couldn't convert on the offensive end, as Williamsport ended the Cougars' surprising state title bid with a 34-21 victory in the Class 1A championship game yesterday at Catonsville Community College.The Cougars (18-6) held top-seeded Williamsport well below its 58-point scoring average, but couldn't score themselves. They hit nine of 48 shots, including one of 14 in the third quarter."Some of that is being tired," said Fallston coach Nancy Ferguson. "We weren't getting any lift on the ball and that's legs.

It's a new season, but two perennial favorites are expected to rule their leagues in Harford County girls basketball.On the one hand is Fallston, returning 10 of its top 12 players of a year ago when it went 21-0 before losing in the state Class 2A semifinals. On the other is Harford Christian, armed with a collection of postseason honors the last two years and coming off successive records of 28-1 and 19-3.Fallston will be after its third straight county and regional titles, with only senior Suzy Harrison (back surgery)

No. 9 Fallston faced its biggest test of the season last night against visiting Joppatowne, and it was up to the challenge as it outlasted the Mariners, 51-44, to remain undefeated.Outmatched in size and strength inside, the Cougars needed a strong outside performance, and for the most part they got it.In a game that saw five lead changes and one tie, Joppatowne (13-2, 8-1) never made things easy for Fallston (15-0, 9-0)."Our key coming in was to stop [leading scorer Brandi Barnes] and we did an all right job doing it, but you can't just focus on her alone because Joppatowne has so much balance," said Fallston coach Nancy Ferguson.
