Broadneck’s 2-1 win over previously unbeaten Urbana in the Class 4A championship game was a microcosm of its season: The Bruins played with skill and grit, showed an ability to make adjustments and stayed composed in the most important minutes.

Coach John Camm pushed all the right buttons and had his players sold on the importance of getting better every day.

The Bruins showed just how much they grew in the title game, avenging a 2-0 loss to the Hawks from Frederick County in the season's opening week.

When Hawks star forward Abbey Burdette threatened a couple of times early, Camm moved senior Emily York from her center back position to specifically mark her, banking on Emily Schweitzer being able to fill York's spot.

The Bruins gradually took hold of the game, got two second-half goals from Makenna Dean and then stayed poised after the Hawks got one goal back. Camm has guided the Bruins to two state titles in the past three years and has a 153-51-21 mark in 14 seasons.
