November 11, 2007|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,Sun reporter

A touchdown pass by Kyle Colleran and two field goals by Chapman Cole gave No. 7 Broadneck a 13-0 victory over No. 15 Severna Park yesterday, and likely gave the host Bruins (8-2) the No. 2 seed in the Class 4A East region while eliminating the Falcons (6-4) from the playoffs.

"We knew Severna Park would come out fighting, and we're fortunate to get out of here with a win," Broadneck coach Jeff Herrick said. "We wish we could have put more points on the board, but they're a good defensive team."

North County (6-4), a 47-12 winner at Meade (1-9) on Friday, moves into the fourth seed and will travel to No. 4 Arundel (10-0), the top seed, Friday at 6:30 p.m. Broadneck will play host to No. 8 Old Mill (8-2) on Friday at 6:30 in the other 4A East semifinal.

Colleran completed nine of 21 passes for 109 yards and ran 12 times for 69 yards. He hit Kyle Jones for a 22-yard touchdown pass with 36 seconds left in the first half.

Cole kicked the extra point and added field goals of 35 and 34 yards in the third and fourth quarters.

Broadneck's defense, led by lineman Tony Bagdon, limited the Falcons to 23 rushing yards and 130 passing. Falcons quarterback Pat Morrison was intercepted three times - by J.J. Hicks, Blake Leathers and Richie Van Ry.

Morrison, who also plays defensive back, limited Hicks - who came into the game with 15 touchdowns on 38 receptions for 965 yards - to one catch for 24 yards and no touchdowns.
