Schroer hits 1,000, but BC falls to Madison

Brownstown Central’s five-game winning streak came to an end Tuesday night as visiting Madison used a 20-2 effort in the first quarter to win 49-40.

But the Braves didn’t go down without a fight, as they exerted plenty of effort to make the game interesting and pulled within six points at the end of the third. However, the effort fell short, and the comeback was not to be.

In spite of the loss, Brave senior Ashley Schroer netted her 1,000th point, becoming the sixth Brave player in program history to reach the mark. Needing just 10 points to get there, Schroer earned the feat and will have a chance to build on it Saturday against MSC rival Charlestown.

Ro Baltazar picked up the third pin of the night for the Owls at 106, while Nate Banister ended the pin train for the Owls with a win at 132.

Other wins for Seymour came at 126 by Sam Castetter, who won by a 16-2 major decision, and Jake Kriete, who also won by major decision 10-0. Ben Kriete rounded out the Seymour wins with a tech fall victory at 145.
