Five goals between Beau Davis and Beau Nickerson and aggressive defense led host Broadneck to an important, 7-3 victory over No. 11 South River last night in Cape St. Claire.

Prevailing in a driving rain that affected play very little, Broadneck (7-3 overall, 7-1 Anne Arundel) gained ground on South River (9-2, 6-2) as they vie for a spot in the county championship game. The Bruins pulled into a tie for second place with Annapolis in league play. They play at Annapolis on Monday.

Broadneck came into last night's contest motivated by a 10-9 loss to league-leading and No. 8 Severna Park (10-0, 8-0) on Tuesday. The Falcons scored twice in the final 35 seconds to beat the Bruins.

"We had to overcome the loss to Severna Park right away when we came out here tonight," said Davis, a junior midfielder who had three goals and an assist last night after scoring four goals against Severna Park. "We played well against Severna Park and expected to do the same tonight."

Things didn't start that way. The Seahawks' Chris Wolf took a feed from Randy Sroka inside and scored eight seconds in.

"After that first goal, their goalie made a couple quick saves on us," said South River coach Greg Carroll, "and we started to panic."

Only Wolf and Richie Ward (two goals) scored for South River.

Broadneck goalie Jake Boulay (10 saves) was cited by his coach, Clay White, as the leader of a superb defensive effort.
