No. 7 Millers slide past New Town for spot in Baltimore County boys’ basketball final; Goodwin scores 19
Milford Mill Academy boys’ basketball is one step closer to redemption. The No. 7 Millers defeated New Town, 52-43, in a Baltimore County Division I match in Owings Mills Thursday.
Senior guard Jordan Goodwin finished with a game-high 19 points for Milford Mill (18-2 overall), which clinched first in Division I (11-0). The Millers will play the Division II champ for the Baltimore County crown Tuesday evening at Towson University’s SECU Arena.
Last season, the Millers lost to Perry Hall in the final. Milford Mill got revenge and spoiled the Gators’ Senior Night with a 69-66 decision Monday. Trailing 40-37 entering the fourth Thursday in front of a hostile audience, the Millers turn to their defense and Goodwin.
Goodwin, a transfer from St. Frances Academy, scored nine of his 19 points in the fourth as Milford Mill outscored New Town, 15-3. The Millers limited New Town to a Darrius Outlaw basket and Noel Carter free throw over the final eight minutes.
Sophomore guard Martaz Robinson finished with 12 points for the Titans (16-5, 9-2 Division I), who were denied a fourth trip to the league final in six seasons.
Milford Mill, which last won the Baltimore County crown in 2013, the last of five straight by the Washington Avenue school.
