Softball

Dragons outduel Braves

Silver Creek and Brownstown were in a grind-it-out softball game on Tuesday as the Braves visited the Dragons.

Silver Creek put up two runs in the bottom of the third inning, and the Braves got one back in the top of the sixth, but their comeback fell just short as Silver Creek won 2-1.

Erin Singleton, Emily Dillman and Kyndle Huddleston each got one hit on the day, and Singleton scored the lone run in the game.

Kelsey Schneider pitched all six innings, striking out five batters and allowing five hits.

The Braves will look to bounce back later today at home against North Harrison.
