Junior swing player Stacy Himes scored 12 of her team-high 16 points in the second half, leading No. 3 Old Mill to a come-from-behind victory, 51-47, over No. 8 Broadneck yesterday in an Anne Arundel County game.
The Bruins (11-3) suffered their first home loss in four years, but they didn't go down easily, leading after each of the first three quarters. Old Mill (13-1) went ahead for good with 6 minutes left in the game when junior center Debbie Dawson took a Himes pass and scored inside to break a 40-40 tie. The Patriots led by as many as five points twice in the last 3 minutes, 35 seconds, but Broadneck narrowed the gap to 48-47 on a bank shot by Jen Chapman with 43 seconds remaining.
Himes then made a free throw, and after a Broadneck turnover, Patriots sophomore guard Michelle Salmon made two free throws with 18 seconds left. The teams exchanged turnovers before Broadneck senior guard Amy Chaney missed a three-point attempt, and Himes grabbed her fifth rebound to secure the win.
