The Hawks were both teams' mascots, but the Hagerstown Community College women's basketball team easily won this battle of the birds Wednesday night, routing Harrisburg 78-24 at the HCC athletic complex.
HCC shined like its new, lighted press table, which was first used Wednesday.
HCC raised its record to 4-0, while Harrisburg (0-1) opened its season with a loss.
"We didn't know what to expect," HCC coach Marlys Palmer said. "We never played Harrisburg before. But this was only their first game. You can have trouble playing your first game away from home. They had trouble handling our press. We took the press off once we got the big lead."
HCC came into the game ranked in the top 10 in the nation in three statistical categories. HCC was fourth in defensive average at 41 points per game, ninth in offensive average at 85 points per game and ninth in free throw percentage at 70.4 percent.
