Charlie Parker chipped in a triple-double with 13 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists. Denzel Jackson continued his control of the boards as he registered a double-double 14 points and 13 rebounds.
The Firedogs are a young team, short on experience but they fought hard against the defending EBA Champions as they ventured onto the road for the first time.
Darnell Braswell, their 6'1'' guard, led the team with 30 points. Will Barrett, 6'10'' Center from Princeton, had six 3's, all in the 2nd half, as he posted 19 points. Ethan Eichhorst contributed 25 points for the losing effort.
Horizon's Charlie Parker (Millersville U.) continued his dominating play as he lead his team to a hard fought 125-108 victory over the newcomers from the Nationís capital DMV Warriors.
The Horizon found themselves down 36-24 after one. Parker then went to work and threw in 10 of his 24 point total in the 2nd quarter to give the Horizon a 57-54 edge at halftime.
The big green machine continued to roll in the final two quarters with sharp shooting and aggressive defense to secure victory.
Josiah Peay (U of Maine) along with Parker contributed a double -double with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Peay's early season performances have him in line for team's most improved honors.
Denzel Jackson pulled down 17 rebounds to go with Parker's 14, as the Horizon controlled the boards. DMV suffered a blow to their rebounding game late in the first period when their 6'1'' Center Mike Anderson sustained a tail bone injury and was unable to continue. He had already pulled down 7 rebounds when he was forced from the game.
EBA veterans Brian Smith and Randy Gill had 21 points each for the visitors. DMV, on this opening game performance showed that they will be a team to be reckoned with as the season progresses.
Horizon (2-0) will take on the Schuylkill Firedogs (1-0) next Sunday Feb 22. The players will conduct their Sertoma Fantasy Camp clinic for the hard of hearing youth before the game.

HARRISBURG - Charlie Parker registered a triple-double and team newcomer Nick Brady scored 15 points Sunday in the Harrisburg Horizon's 122-95 victory over the Maryland Bayraiders at Manny Weaver Gym.

Brady, a product of York College who's played professionally in Iceland, came off the bench and instantly showed he's a deep threat by hitting on two of his first three 3-point attempts.
Harrisburg is the defending Eastern Basketball Alliance champions.
