BOONSBORO - The Middletown Knights took control of the game early and beat the Boonsboro Warriors 69-30 on Tuesday night in a Monocacy Valley Athletic League girls' basketball game.

The score was tied 4-4 when Middletown (13-5 overall, 11-3 MVAL) went on a 12-0 scoring spurt over the final 5 1/2 minutes of the first quarter.

Danielle Costello, a 6-foot senior center, scored eight straight points to start the Knights' spree.

"We got a lot of points off of the fast break," Costello said. "We were able to get the ball down the floor very fast. I was hustling down the floor. I'm usually one of the first players down the floor. I give a lot of credit to Jenna House and Danielle Summers for getting the ball down the floor. They do such great passes. I was able to get in very good position to get my baskets."

Costello scored a game-high 16 points and grabbed five rebounds. Amber Holian scored 15 points, and Brynnie Mannis tallied 14 points for Middletown.

House contributed six assists and five steals, while Summers dished off five assists for the Knights. Katie Moore pulled down eight rebounds, while Mandy Harshman grabbed eight rebounds for Middletown.

Middletown assistant coach Allison Eiler, who is temporarily filling in for Kara Nelson, was impressed with the Knights' performance.

"We pushed the ball up the floor, and we were playing good solid defense," Eiler said. "Those were the keys to our success at the start of the game."

Sophomore guard Katie Proudman scored a team-high 11 points, while Ashley Amezcua and Brittaney Selby grabbed seven rebounds each for the Warriors (6-9 overall, 3-8 MVAL).

"They are a great fast-breaking team, and we knew that we couldn't run with them," Boonsboro coach Bernie Semler said.

The Middletown JV team posted an 82-8 victory.
