Arlington's Drew Bryson locks down Meadowdale's point guard at Arlington High School on Dec. 16.

The Arlington Eagles boys basketball team hosted the Meadowdale Mavericks on their home court on Dec. 16.

Through the first three quarters the Eagles battled the Mavericks in a back-and-forth game, where no one team looked like the clear favorite. After three quarters of play the Eagles fell behind by a single point, with a score of 38-39.

In the fourth everything changed. Arlington took over with efficient passing, a smothering defense and some electric play from their stars. In the end, the Eagles outscored Meadowdale 18-4 in the final quarter on their way to a 56-43 victory.

"First of all, we need to nail down the fact that we need to bring four quarters every game. We can not just go for two and a half or three quarters, we have to have four. In the second half, I was a little bit nervous, they hit a three in the third and I thought it might be over. We made some adjustments, put some pressure on them and came back. The guys made some great plays, made sure to get the extra pass and took the smart shot tonight," said Arlington Head Coach Nick Brown.
