Bruins fall, 30-27, in shootout with Potomac; Ehrlich throws for four scores


Broadneck High sophomore quarterback Josh Ehrlich picked up right where he left off in his sensational freshman campaign, throwing four touchdown passes in the Bruins’ 2019 season-opener, Friday at Potomac, but it was enough to get them in the win column.

Potomac’s Corey Dyches hauled in a 8-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Dominique Anthony with just 46-seconds to play, lifting the home team to a thrilling 30-27 win over No. 10 Broadneck in Prince George’s County.

Anthony and Dyches, who’s committed to the University of Maryland, also combined for TD passes of 16, 14 and 77-yards earlier in the contest as they combined to do in the Bruins.

After a scoreless opening period, Potomac sandwiched two Dyches touchdown catches around a 47-yard scoring strike from Ehrlich to Andre Woods, Jr. as the Wolverines led 14-7 in the half.

In the third quarter, Ehrlich (21-of-33 for 264 yards) connected with Kyle Pierce for a 21-yard score to tie the contest, but Potomac went back up on top, 20-14, one minute later, when Anthony found Dyches with a deep ball.

Ehrlich rallied the Bruins to the lead twice in the fourth quarter. First, with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Dan Shea, on the first play of the final quarter, and with a 16-yard TD throw to Pierce, to take a 27-23 lead with 3:26 left, after Potomac had gone in front with a field goal.

The Broadneck defense, however, could not stop Anthony and Dyches, who pulled out the victory for their team in the final minute. Anthony completed 21-of-30 throws in the contest for 338 yards and Dyches had nine catches for 206 yards.

Ehrlich also rushed 11 times for 43 yards and Woods had eight grabs for 120 yards.
