Aberdeen High and Kenwood, who opened their respective boys basketball seasons against each other, will meet again, this time in the Class 3A North Region I semifinals after opening round victories Friday.

The 14th-ranked Eagles routed Towson, 99-55, while Kenwood held off Patapsco, 55-54, setting up the rematch Tuesday in Harford County for a spot in the region final Thursday.

After blowing a 12-point first quarter advantage, Kenwood got a free throw from junior Danny Webb with 1 minute, 14 seconds left in regulation to knock off its Baltimore County rival for the second time this season.

Webb finished with 21 points, seven rebounds and five assists for the No. 3 seed Bluebirds (17-6 overall), and Austin Mbuyi added 15 points and nine rebounds. Patapsco, which lost to Kenwood, 80-66 during the regular season, missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Aberdeen (19-4) had a much easier time as the UCBAC Chesapeake champions won for the 12th straight decision. Six players scored in double figures, led by Artarus Brown’s 20 points and Tyseaun Rodgers had 15.

The second-seeded Eagles led 24-15 after the opening quarter before exploding for 32 points in the second frame for a 56-28 halftime cushion. Kenny Hunter and Tylan Bass added 14 and 13 points, respectively.

In the season opener, Aberdeen raced out to a 29-15 first quarter lead, only to see Kenwood rally for a 78-71 victory. Tuesday’s victor will play fourth-seeded Edgewood or No. 1 seed C. Milton Wright Thursday.
