Broadneck Girls Demolish Annapolis In Semi, 50-19

March 05, 1992|By Staff report

No. 13 was lucky for Broadneck's girls basketball team last night. That's the number of players who scored in its 50-19 victory over visiting Annapolis in a Class 4A Region IV semifinal game.

It's hard to believe that the Bruins once trailed in the contest. Yet they had to outscore the third-seeded Panthers (14-10), 21-1, in the second quarter to turn an 8-5 first-quarter deficit into a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

The second-seeded Bruins (20-3), who raised their winning streak to nine games, were led by Ava Tasker (10 points, three steals) and Michelle Meyer (eight, two). Sarah Bannat and Kennita Kirby-Jones chipped in five points each and contributed seven and six rebounds, respectively.

Broadneck's 6-foot-1 center Jen Chapman had four points and five boards. Annapolis was led by 6-1 center Lisa Roberts (seven points, nine rebounds).

The victory earned Broadneck the right to face top-seeded and defending state champion Old Mill -- the last teamto defeat the Bruins. The Patriots downed Arundel, 57-28, in the other semifinal.

"We want that one real bad," said Tasker, who nettedeight of Broadneck's 11 third-quarter points. "We played them close last time, and we feel we have the potential to beat them."
