Borden Braves

BORDEN — Borden built an early lead, then shutout visiting Crothersville in the fourth quarter for a 34-23 triumph in the Southern Athletic Conference opener for both Tuesday night.

Emily Cissell scored a game-high 15 points to pace the Braves, who led 12-9 at the end of the first quarter, 21-17 at halftime and 28-23 at the conclusion of the third period before outscoring the Tigers 6-0 in the final frame.

Kaela Rose added 11 points for Borden, which got some solid defense from Kaylie Magallanes and Caitlyn Cook.

“I thought Kaylie and Caitlyn did a pretty good job in the halfcourt of guarding their two best players,” Braves coach Matt Vick said. “Kaela Rose did a good job of attacking the glass and hitting some shots for us.”

Borden (4-1, 1-0) next hosts Rock Creek at 6 p.m. Thursday night.
