Eleven different players scored for Calvert Hall on Sunday afternoon as the Cardinals defeated Our Lady of Mount Carmel, 67-36, in MIAA A Conference/Baltimore Catholic League basketball action, in Towson.
Evan Phoenix, a 6-foot-8 junior center led the Hall (8-1, 3-1, 2-1) with 15, junior guard Drew Edwards added 11, and junior guard Nico Clareth chipped in with 10.
Calvert Hall coach John Bauersfeld said it was the defense that made the difference against the Cougars (4-4,1-4, 0-3).
“We did a good job coming in. We had to focus on David (Erebor), getting around him, and keeping Frank (Webb) out of the lane,’ said Bauersfeld. “I thought our guards did a good job on their perimeter guys, keeping them out of the paint.”
Phoenix helped the Cards jump out to a quick 8-0 lead with two early buckets, and Edwards had seven second quarter points as the Hall took a commanding 32-19 lead at the half.
Bauersfeld said, “Evan has played well. He got in foul trouble in the first half and he had a great second half. Drew (Edwards) does a lot of different things [very well]. He fills the stat sheet up with rebounds, assists, blocks and steals. He did a great job today.”
The Hall led wire to wire, and they held the high scoring Cougar duo of Erebor and Webb to 13 points combined.
In other A Conference action, Glenelg Country School topped Loyola 44-39.
