Braves still searching for conference win
While Brownstown Central gave Class 3A No. 2 Salem all it could handle, the Braves are still without a Mid-Southern Conference win.
The Lions (8-0, 3-0 MSC) used a strong fourth quarter in a 48-40 win over the Braves (5-6, 0-4 MSC) Tuesday.
Salem led 16-11 after eight minutes of play.
The Lions had four points and the Braves scored just one in a rough second quarter, and the visitors held a 20-12 lead.
A 20-point outburst in the third quarter allowed the Braves to tie the game at 32 going into the final eight minutes, but the Lions tacked on more 16 points in the fourth quarter to get the win.
Halle Hehman led the Braves with 13 points, and Hope Tomlinson had 16 for the Lions.
Brownstown has lost five straight games and will host Austin on Saturday for another conference contest.
