Edison Boys Dominate Hayfield in Bird Bowl

LaSalle Mensah scored a team high 18 points in the win.

The Edison Eagles captured the first leg of this year’s Bird Bowl, soundly beating the Hayfield Hawks 67-43, before a partisan home crowd that was decked out in “Dread the Red” t-shirts.

Edison used their superior size and strength in the paint to dominate on both ends of the court. They led throughout the game, extending the lead to 25 points in the fourth quarter.

The win improved the Eagles’ record to 6-5 on the season, while the Hawks dropped to 5-8. It was Edison’s third consecutive win over the Hawks dating back to last season. Edison was led by LaSalle Mensah, who scored 18 points, Marcus Brumsey, Jr., who notched 14, and Matt Murphy, who scored 10 while dominating under the glass. Senior Tyrone Mackall also scored 11 points, four on electrifying dunks that send the home crowd into a frenzy.

The Hawks were led by Nate McShay who scored 18 points, and Garrick Short, who tallied 8 and played terrific defense.  The two teams will meet again on February 3.
