Long Reach High School beat Mt. Hebron (61 to 43) on Thursday and then beat Centennial (49 – 40) on Friday to extend their current winning streak to six games (and ten consecutive wins within county play).

Here is a tweet thread from Brent Kennedy (High School Sports Coordinator for Baltimore Sun Media Group) who was covering the game last night: (note – content embedded from twitter)

Here are the updated county wide standings:

Long Reach High will play their rivals Howard High on February 12th at Howard High School…for those that like high school basketball…this is a must see game in the county. Long Reach beat Howard (47 to 43) back on January 17th…so expect another good game between two of the top teams in Howard County on Tuesday evening.


Long Reach has four games remaining this season (three on the road and one home game):

2/12 -5:30p @ Howard (Ellicott City, MD)
2/14 -5:30p @ Atholton (Columbia, MD)
2/15 -6:30p @ South Carroll (Sykesville, MD)
2/22 -7:00p Glenelg (Glenelg, MD)

Stay tuned for more updates on the blog in the near future.
