Broadneck's move pays off

Redderson's goals propel Bruins past Old Mill

High Schools


The Broadneck boys soccer team has played all the right hunches so far this season, and that was definitely the case last night at Old Mill.

Looking to add some extra offensive pressure in a scoreless game, Bruins coach Sean Tettemer inserted sophomore Dylan Redderson to start the second half.

The added heat came and so did the goals. Redderson scored twice - the first coming in the 45th minute and another that proved to be the game-winner in the 55th minute as the No. 8 Bruins knocked off the defending Anne Arundel County and No. 9 Patriots, 2-1.

Broadneck improved to 9-0 overall and 7-0 in league play, while Old Mill fell to 7-3 and 5-2.

Both goals came off perfect balls sent in, with Jamie Flewellyn assisting on the first goal and Tim McCormick the second. Staying just onside for both, Redderson had two poised finishes from inside the penalty area to provide the offense. After Old Mill senior Derek Harris scored with 12 minutes left to cut the lead to 2-1, the Bruins protected the lead by staying composed with the ball.

"The balls played in were perfect and I beat the offsides by just a little bit. Then I just looked for the best spots to place them," said Redderson, who now has five goals. "We've been working really hard for this game and we just wanted to come out with our best and beat them on their home field."

Despite being without two regulars, the Bruins kept with their plan of running fresh legs throughout. Strong play in back and at midfield limited the Patriots' scoring chances and it was Redderson's turn to be the offensive hero in their balanced attack.

"We were hoping to really put some pressure on them in the first 15 minutes or so. I'm not sure we were successful in putting more pressure on them, but we were able to capitalize on a couple of breaks we got," Tettemer said. "Dylan has done a great job of when he gets an opening - finishing it. He's been coming off the bench and giving us a great spark."

"We played hard, but I don't think we're necessarily playing very smart at times," Old Mill coach Jeff Martin said.
