No. 8 Warriors rout Randallstown; violation sends Dundalk to SECU


Woodlawn’s Mark Brinkley releases a successful jumper during the first half of Friday’s Baltimore County Division I boys’ basketball contest with Randallstown. The No. 8 Warriors handled the Rams for a berth in Tuesday’s league title game at Towson University.

Demauri Warren scored 21 points, and freshman Marlon Lewis added 15 as No. 8 Woodlawn High defeated Randallstown, 89-50, in a Baltimore County Division II boys’ basketball contest Friday.

The Warriors (19-3 overall, 11-0 Division II) led wire-to-wire, opening with the game’s first 16 points to clinch first place. Woodlawn will play Dundalk for the league championship, Tuesday evening at 7:30 at Towson University’s SECU Arena.

The Warriors, which needed a win to avoid a tiebreaker with Randallstown (15-5, 10-2 Division II) and No. 10 Perry Hall (11-1 Division II)  got 14 points from Reshaud Garrison, and Mark Brinkley added 13.

Woodlawn, which last won the league title in 2015, will take on Dundalk. The Owls gained first in Division II after winning a tiebreaker over Milford Mill Academy and New Town.

The tiebreaker occurred after Milford Mill had to forfeit last week’s victory over Dundalk for using an ineligible player.

 

Dundalk, Milford Mill and New Town each finished 11-1 in Baltimore County Division I. The Owls advance based on having the best winning percentage against state public schools (excluding holiday tournaments).
