A steady rain began to fall before kickoff of Friday’s Brownstown Central-Silver Creek football game at Blevins Memorial Stadium.

Midway through the first quarter, it rained a little harder.

The rain stayed around for whole game, but the Braves were able to capture a 35-0 homecoming win against the Dragons. This was Brownstown’s first shutout of the season.

“That was a good win for us,” Braves coach Reed May said. “We knew they had explosive offense, but I am sure the weather had something to do with that. They throw the ball quite a bit, but we had to play under the same conditions.

“We were able to throw the ball a little bit, and we wanted to get a win tonight. Now, we have Corydon next week, which obviously they are a good football team, and then the draw is Sunday, so we will see who we get in the draw.”

The Braves held the Dragons to a three-and-out on their first possession, and they took over on the 42-yard line. Clay Brown completed two passes for 24 yards, and then he handed the ball to Mitchell Scarlett, who threw a 17-yard pass to Jacob Wilson for a touchdown and a 7-0 lead.
