Borden went on a 10-0 run to open the fourth quarter of Saturday’s girls basketball game, and the Braves led the rest of the way to defeat Trinity Lutheran 53-43.

The Cougars kept a 36-30 lead going into the fourth quarter before the Braves rallied to lead 40-36 following Shelby Kirchgessner’s 3-point basket with 6:38 remaining.

Trinity’s Brianna Sons made a layup at the 6:12 mark for a 40-38 score. A free throw by Kyra Klosterman at 5:15 left Trinity trailing 41-39 before Borden went on a 7-0 run.

A lot of those Borden points came off of offensive rebounds. The Braves had a 35-28 advantage on the boards, including 20 offensive.

“They had 17 (offensive rebounds) in the second half,” Cougars coach Mike Lang said of the Braves. “We talked about they weren’t scoring anything from the wings. We didn’t want to come out and overplay the wings, but we came out and overplayed the wing, we didn’t have our help side (defense) and I have no clue where our middles were going. They obviously had a mind of their own at that time, which allowed (Borden) in to hit the gaps.
