Brownstown slips past Dragons to advance


The Brownstown Central boys basketball team found itself in an unfamiliar position with 4:36 left in Tuesday’s Class 3A Sectional 30 game against Silver Creek.

The Braves trailed 35-34, and coach Dave Benter called a timeout and issued a challenge to his team — to work the ball for good shots, play hard on defense and come up with some stops.

The Braves outscored the Dragons 15-2 over the final 4:20 to open defense of their sectional title with a 49-37 win.

“Credit our guys,” Benter said. “Our backs were against the wall with four and a half minutes to go when they took the lead, and we made some huge plays in the last four and a half minutes. We called timeout when we were down one, and (Chaz) Schneider came out of that timeout and hit a 3, and I think Brett (McCory) threw one to Skylar (Thompson) for a layup, and we took a (39-35) lead.
