Broadneck may have been guilty of overlooking Glen Burnie a week ago, in a game the Bruins narrowly won. There would be no repeat performance against Severna Park.
The Bruins offense scored early and often, and the defense stymied Severna Park all night long as Broadneck coasted to a 56-0 win, handing head coach Rob Harris his 100th win at the school.
“This is how you want it to go,” said Broadneck senior defensive end Tyler Hicks, who led a slew of Bruins to gang-tackle Severna Park runners seemingly at will. “Severna Park is our biggest rival, so to come out and play as well as we did tonight is really important to us.”
Broadneck (4-1) posted nearly 500 yards of total offense, nearly half of that courtesy of standout tailback Ian Mauldin. He touched the ball just eight times Friday, but four of them went for touchdowns. He scored on plays of 22, 52, 65, and 80 yards on his way to a night of 228 yards from scrimmage.
C.J. Watkins ran for a touchdown and passed for another, and Mari Hayes, Joey Smargissi and DaQuann Woodall Jr. also scored. Patrick Doyle completed eight of 10 passes for 176 yards and two scores, both to Mauldin.
The only blight on the evening, from the Bruins’ perspective, was too much laundry on the field. Broadneck was flagged for four personal fouls and one unsportsmanlike conduct foul as part of an 11-penalty, 118-yard accumulation. Four of Severna Park’s 11 first downs came via penalty.
“Offensively we were clicking, defensively we were good,” Harris said. “Upset about the penalties; we have to clean that up. That’s a problem.”
For the Falcons, on the other hand, little went right. A three-and-out on their first possession culminated in a partially blocked punt, which gave Broadneck a short field. Their last two plays were a botched punt snap that lost 15 yards, followed by an interception. In between, they simply couldn’t muster momentum on either side of the ball to stem the black and maroon Broadneck wave.
Jack Fish caught five passes for 77 yards from the receiver position, but Severna Park mustered just 130 yards of offense, and only 19 on the ground. Jonathan Wark carried 14 times for 31 yards for the Falcons, who turned the ball over three times.
Severna Park moved the ball briefly by shifting to a tempo-driven offense in the second quarter, but the drive couldn’t be sustained.
“We did a few things well, but Broadneck is a very good team and they’re really well coached,” said Severna Park coach Nicholas Marks. “We have some good football games left to play and need to just keep getting better.”
Next Friday, Broadneck visits Old Mill and Severna Park hosts Northeast for homecoming.
