Going into Tuesday night’s home game against Salem, the Seymour boys basketball team hadn’t faced an opponent in 11 days. The regularly scheduled game was postponed because of the weather.
Owls coach Scott Miller was glad to see his team tame the Lions 60-43 for the second win of the season.
“It did feel good to play another opponent,” he said. “You get this late in the season with games you have to make up, and a lot of them that are potentially conference, but we are fortunate to get this one in.”
Chase Salmon and Landon Booth led the Owls in the first quarter as they combined to score 12 of the team’s 14 points. Booth made a 3-pointer, but the Lions scored the next five points for a 5-3 lead.
Salmon then had a putback and made a free throw, and Jackson Stuart scored to make it 8-5. After the Lions scored, the Owls went on a 6-0 run to close out the first quarter with a 14-7 lead.
