DRAIN — Junior guard Samantha MacDowell scored a career-high 17 points with three 3-pointers and North Douglas' defensive pressure bothered Elkton in a 50-24 win on Tuesday in a nonleague girls basketball game.

Brooklyn Williams had nine points and Cydni Dill added seven for the Warriors (3-0), who broke the contest open by outscoring the Elks 20-5 in the third quarter.

Margaret Byle scored nine points and Avree Block had five for Elkton.
