Archbishop Spalding and McDonogh School’s girls’ basketball have produced some of most compelling contests the past couple of seasons. It wasn’t the case Wednesday evening in Owings Mills.

The top-ranked Eagles dominated from the opening tip-off, posting a 76-37 decision over the Cavaliers in an IAAM A Conference match. Junior guard Danielle Edwards had 18 points and Dajah Logan added 17 for McDonogh.

The Eagles (11-1 overall, 4-0 IAAM A) led 49-18 at halftime in the rematch of last season’s league finals, won by Spalding, which rallied in the fourth quarter to win its second title in three seasons. McDonogh handed the Cavaliers their only area loss with a 41-40 regular season win in Owings Mills.

The Eagles, who won the 2012 league crown after rallying from a 22-point first half deficit, raced out to a 23-7 first quarter advantage Wednesday as freshman forward Morgan Jacobs had 12 points and junior forward Jameira Johnson finished with nine rebound and four blocked shots.

Victoria Reynolds and Erin Baker each scored for 10 points for Spalding (4-9, 1-3). The Cavaliers host Mercy Friday.

McDonogh, winners of seven straight, is at Seton Keough Friday.
