For the second straight year, one of Broadneck's Case brothers beat Mount Hebron in sudden-death overtime in the state Class 3A-4A championship game.
Last year Gerry Case scored the game-winning goal. Yesterday at UMBC, it was Joey Case making the assist on the game-winning goal scored by Jason Randolph.
Broadneck's 9-8 victory gave the No. 8-ranked Bruins, now 17-3, their second straight state title and their fourth state crown in six years -- the most by any school.
No. 4-ranked Mount Hebron's loss was the Vikings' (18-2) third straight overtime loss in the state finals. Mount Hebron's only other loss this season was to Broadneck in a regular-season game, 7-6.
"We won this one for Gerry," said Joey Case, whose older brother was a freshman at Loyola College when he died March 22 of meningitis. "We owed it to him. Mount Hebron was a great team, but we had an extra guy playing with us today with my brother."
The game-winning goal, 12 seconds into overtime, came on an underhanded pass by Case to Randolph on the back side.
"Mount Hebron slid early and I was wide open," Randolph said. "He gave me an unbelievable underhand feed. Our game all season has been back side."
Case said: "I saw I couldn't get off a shot, so as my last resort I saw Randolph and just flipped it."
A crucial advantage for Broadneck was a 13-7 edge in faceoffs with Brian Lawton taking control after the first quarter.
Mount Hebron exploded to a 4-1 lead in the first quarter, helped by a 4-2 edge in faceoffs for Mike Huppmann. But Broadneck beat the Vikings 5-1 on faceoffs in the second quarter and stormed back to a 5-5 halftime tie.
Erik Holt scored twice in the second period and Nate Williams and Kelly Nash each scored once. Holt also scored Broadneck's first goal and had two assists in the third period.
The teams exchanged goals throughout the second half with Lawton putting the Bruins up 8-7 with three minutes to play.
But with 25 seconds left in regulation Mount Hebron's Bryan Wraner took a pass from Kyle Campbell and tied it at 8. Campbell scored four goals and had one assist for the Vikings.
"We had a chance to put them away early and didn't," Campbell said. "We just didn't keep up our intensity."
Broadneck coach Clay White praised his goalkeeper, Mike Allen, who made 13 saves.
"Allen was super in goal," he said. "Mount Hebron took it to us early but we had more depth at midfield. What we've been through and what we've accomplished as a team is a Cinderella story.
"Gerry's number was No. 9 and we win, 9-8. Gerry's always been with this team. We feel his presence. Joey Case is a hero."
