Braves bounce back at Charlestown
The Brownstown boys basketball team got back on track Monday night by defeating Charlestown on the road 67-38.
Jack Benter led the Braves in scoring with 22 points, Aidan Schroer added 14, Parker Hehman nine, Carson Darlage seven, Carter Waskom five, Jakob Arthur four, and Trapper Dean, Levi Stahl and Adam Stahl each scored two points.
“They were in an inverted triangle two, so they only had one guy guarding our post guys down low,” head coach Dave Benter said on the radio after the game. “That opened up things a lot. They were doubling Jack and Carter. That was the first time we’ve seen that defense all year.”
Monday’s game with Charlestown was originally scheduled for Friday, but was postponed due to weather last week.
This victory also came after the Braves suffered a 92-78 loss at Corydon Central on Saturday.
In that game, Benter scored 29, Waskom 28, Arthur 11, Schroer eight and Bryce Neal two.
Brownstown is now 13-3 on the season and will return home on Thursday to host Columbus East.
