Fallston girls basketball bests Aberdeen, 41-32, while both sides work out kinks

As visiting teams are introduced in Fallston’s gym, the crowd naturally quiets. However, when the Cougars girls basketball roster is read through, it’s scored by a familiar tune – the slow build up of the bass guitar followed by the drums and an orchestra, met by an accompanying keyboard. The song, “Sirius” by the Alan Parsons Project, made famous by the Chicago Bulls dynasty of the 1990s, is an intro fitting for a team that finished atop the conference last year.

The group recently beat Aberdeen 41-32 and is still searching for their own scaled down version of Bulls dominance. Fallston coach Johnny Woods noted that the team is moving the ball better and showed improvement in defense and rebounding. Ayla Galloway, Fallston’s top scoring player, finished the game with 18 points and four assists.

The rest of the Cougars roster also worked out kinks after carrying an 18-13 lead into the locker room, steadily enlarging their lead during the game. Aberdeen’s aggressive backcourt tandem, Nyjah Harris and Morgan Hargrove, showed their potential, scoring 14 and five points, respectively. Both coaches expressed frustration with the officiating at times.

Overall, the game showed that Fallston is one step closer to resembling the historic 1990s Chicago Bulls dynasty, while Aberdeen has the potential to hang in the conference’s upper echelon.

Historical background: The Chicago Bulls dominated the NBA in the 1990s, winning six championships with Michael Jordan leading the team. Their entrance song, “Sirius” by the Alan Parsons Project, became iconic and is associated with the Bulls’ legacy of success.
