Midway through the second quarter of Saturday’s Brownstown Central-Brown County girls basketball game, the host Eagles led 11-9 after a 3-point basket.

During the next three minutes, however, the Braves scored 12 straight points to lead 21-11.

Brownstown continued to lead throughout the rest of the game, and the Braves managed to eke out a 41-39 win and move to 7-7 on the year, while the Eagles fell to 7-7.

This was the Braves’ first win at Brown County since the 2008-09 season, and coach Karla Rieckers was happy to walk away with the win.

“I thought for the most part, we had a pretty good game,” she said. “There were a few minutes there where they put on the press and we panicked and made a few turnovers we shouldn’t have.”
