Special Basketball Season Ends For Broadneck Girls


Heading into Broadneck's regional semifinal tilt against North Point on Friday, the Bruins were aware of the athleticism of the visiting Eagles. Patience and execution on offense would be paramount to offset the aggressive man defense of the Eagles. And for the first half, Broadneck was able to answer any North Point run with a run of their own, continually battling back from a deficit to retake the lead. Heading into the break down 28-26, the Bruins looked like they would not let the Eagles get away.

However, a decisive third quarter was enough for North Point to head home with a 53-44 win, and a date with Bowie on Wednesday in the region final.

The Bruins looked to have a final push early in the fourth quarter. Down 45-33, Mackenzie Wharton and Samantha Miller drilled back-to-back 3-pointers to cut the deficit in half. After a turnover, Broadneck had a chance to cut further into the lead and potentially put the pressure back on North Point. However, they were not able to convert, and the Eagles pulled away for a final time.

Although not the outcome they were hoping for, Broadneck completed one of the most successful seasons in the school’s girls basketball history with a 19-4 record.
