Lions score big win over No. 6 Leopards



WALKERSVILLE, Md. - Koffi Harrison had 14 points, 14 rebounds and five assists to lead Walkersville to a 65-42 win over No. 6 Smithsburg on Tuesday and tighten the race for second place in the Monocacy Valley Athletic League.

The loss drops the Leopards (13-5, 10-4) into third place, one-half game behind Catoctin, which beat Williamsport, 59-52. Walkersville (12-7, 10-6) is in fourth place, 1 1/2 games behind the Cougars.

Middletown, which beat South Hagerstown 60-23, holds a 2 1/2-game lead over Catoctin.

Walkersville led 29-26 at the half, but outscored the Leopards 36-16 in the second half to win going away.

"We just started to play really good defense and became more patient offensively, getting the ball inside to the post," said Walkersville coach Mike Mathis. "Our post players did the job finishing and did an excellent job of giving them only one shot."
