Braves win thriller

SALEM

In a rematch of last year’s sectional semifinals, Class 3A No. 9 Brownstown Central’s season opener at No. 15 Salem was a Mid-Southern Conference dogfight.

This time around, Salen wouldn’t get the buzzer beater for the win.

Following a pair of free throws by Cody Waskom to pull the Braves within one point at 73-72 with 51 seconds left, Gavin Bane came up with a steal and got it to Ty Maxie for a layup to retake the lead.

Free throws by Carson Lambring sealed the deal after the Lions missed a freebie that was rebounded by Cam Eggersman.

BCHS took an early lead, outscoring the Lions 29-14 after eight minutes of play.

At intermission, the Braves retained a double-digit lead at 47-37.

The Lions out-scored the Braves 26-13 in the third quarter to go up 63-60 after three quarters.

Waskom led the Braves with 25 points, Lambring added 19 and Maxie totaled 16.

The Braves out-rebounded the Lions 35-30 but had 19 rebounds to the home team’s nine.

On Friday, Brownstown Central (1-0, 1-0 MSC) will host Seymour.
