Braves fall at Corydon

The Brownstown girls basketball team opened up its season at Corydon Central on Saturday night, and the Braves suffered a 7-point loss, 50-43.

The Braves won the fourth quarter 19-10, but it was too much to overcome after losing out on the first three quarters, especially the second in which Corydon outscored Brownstown 20-8.

Scoring in double digits for the Braves were Emma Klinge with 11 and Kalee Borden with 10. Andrea Bair, Borden and Hannah Stahl each had 6 rebounds on the day.

Passing was a concern for head coach Brandon Allman heading into the season, and that surfaced on Saturday night as the Braves only had 2 assists to go with 15 turnovers.

Brownstown shot 3-13 from three with Stahl going 2-4 and Klinge going 1-3.

The Braves will look to bounce back on Tuesday night when they go on the road again to New Albany at 7:30 p.m.

Seymour drops game at Salem

The Seymour girls basketball also began its season on Saturday night, and the Owls went on the road to Salem, the No. 6-ranked team in Class 3A.

The Owls lost to the Lions 70-47.

Kendall Sterling and Grace Schrader were the two double-digit scorers for the Owls on Saturday, scoring 12 and 11 points, respectively. Brooke Trinkle contributed six points, and Claire Marshall and Kaylee Waskom each had five points.

The game was tied 12-12 after the first quarter, but after that, the Lions pulled away, taking a 9-point lead into halftime.

Salem won the second half 43-26 to come away with the 23-point victory.

The going doesn’t get any easier for Seymour either. Silver Creek is next up on the schedule on Friday night, and the Dragons are the No. 2-ranked team in Class 3A. That game will also be on the road at 7:30 p.m.

To round out the week, Seymour will host Greenwood for its home-opener on Saturday afternoon at 1:30 p.m.
