The two top point makers in Prince George's County got together for a scoring exhibition at Parkdale last night. In the first half, Oxon Hill's Michael Tate stole the show with 29 points, including 19 in the second quarter.

But after intermission, Henry Hall scored 27 of his 45 points to lead Parkdale to a 105-91 victory Oxon Hill in a Prince George's AA boys basketball game.

Hall, a 6-foot senior, entered the game averaging 36 points per game. He had 18 in the first half and then unloaded, scoring 14 in the third quarter and 13 in the fourth when the Panthers broke open a close game.

In addition to breaking the 40-point mark for the seventh time this season, Hall had eight rebounds and 13 assists.

Tate, a 6-foot-8 junior, was unstoppable in the first half, but sat out a large portion of the third quarter and finished with 40 points.

"He's been sick for two weeks and he wasn't at full strength," Oxon Hill Coach Carrington Smith said. "After he got his third foul {early in the third quarter}, I didn't want him in there the way they were calling the game."

Tate didn't return until 6:20 was left in the contest and the Panthers (11-9) led by 77-69. But Tate's return sparked the Clippers (9-11) to an 8-0 run to tie it at 77 with 4:50 left.

"I couldn't believe he {Tate} sat out for so long," said Hall, who was eight for 15 from three-point range.

However, Parkdale outscored the Clippers by 19-9 in the next three minutes to pull away for good. Hall had five points in the stretch and Carlton Sullivan had six.

Carl Demus had 20 points and 14 rebounds for Parkdale and Darren McAllister and Hallie Williams added 12 points and 11 rebounds each.

After Tate, reserve Sony Nixon scored 10. The Clippers made lonly 15 of 31 free throw attempts.

In the first half, Hall was constantly pestered by the Clippers' Charod Spears and Brian Gardner, but still managed 18 points, including four three-pointers.

"It was bothering me a little bit, but I knew I'd get my points, sooner or later," Hall said.

After scoring 10 points in the first quarter, Tate put on an awesome show in the second period. He scored 19 of his team's 25 points on eight of nine shooting from the floor, including a three-pointer.

Hall was 15 for 27 from the floor.
