The first half of Saturday night’s Brownstown Central-Cory-don Central Mid-Southern Conference game at Brownstown belonged to the visiting Panthers.

They shot 8 of 24 from the floor and 5 of 7 from the free-throw line and led 22-20 at halftime, while the Braves were 8 of 27 and didn’t attempt a free throw.

The second half, however, belonged to the Braves as they were 12 of 26 from the floor and 5 of 7 from the free-throw line to the Panthers’ 3 of 5 and 11 of 14. That resulted in a 55-39 win for the Braves, moving them to 7-0 in the MSC.

“That seems to be our story the last couple of weeks,” Braves coach Dave Benter said. “We just have a lot of trouble of putting four quarters together. We’ve got to start playing 32 minutes and stop having lulls throughout the game.

“A lot of that credit goes to Corydon, as they really guarded us throughout the game and made it difficult. The second quarter, we didn’t get a lot of good looks, and they have athleticism. We changed a few things offensively in the second half as far as how we wanted to attack.”
