Early last month, Broadneck High boys’ basketball team tattered Annapolis, starting the Bruins’ surprising run atop the Anne Arundel County league standings, and into the latest VSN’s Top 10.

Defending Anne Arundel County champ Annapolis rebutted Friday evening, knocking off the No. 10 Bruins, 71-66, in Cape St. Clair. Senior swingman Delonte Joyce scored 24 points for Annapolis (13-3 overall, 7-3 Anne Arundel), and Domico James added 17.

The Panthers went on an 11-0 run to break a 53-53 deadlock, avenging an 83-71 loss on their home court. The win knocked Broadneck (13-2, 7-2 Anne Arundel) out of a first-place tie with Glen Burnie (8-1 Anne Arundel) which defeated Chespaeake-Anne Arundel, 91-53, Friday evening.

Junior Darnell Solomon led all scorers with 29 points for Broadneck, and pulled down 12 rebounds. The Bruins trailed 36-25 at halftime before a 28-17 surge, capped by Solomon’s three-pointer, brought them even midway in the fourth.

Tajuan Watson finished with 15 points for Annapolis, which next plays Tuesday at North County. Taquan Colbert had 15 for Broadneck. The Bruins host No. 15 Glen Burnie Monday afternoon.
