CORYDON — Class 3A No. 2 Silver Creek shook off a slow start for a 59-45 Mid-Southern Conference win at Corydon Central on Tuesday night.

The host Panthers led 21-14 at the end of the first quarter before the Dragons outscored them 17-7 in the second period to take a 31-28 lead in the locker room at halftime. Creek kept it up in the second half, outpointing Corydon 17-6 in the third quarter to take command.

“It wasn’t the prettiest game, but Corydon came out and shot the ball well in the first half,” Silver Creek coach Scott Schoen said. “Our defense was absolutely horrible in the first quarter. We were so concerned with (Ava) Weber that their shooters were left uncontested.

“I thought in the second and third quarters we decided to sit down and play old-fashion, man-to-man defense and not let them get to the paint. And, we were able to get out in transition.”

Alana Striverson scored a game-high 17 points while fellow seniors Jaclyn Emly and Marissa Gasaway nearly had double-doubles. Emly finished with 15 points, nine rebounds and three assists while Gasaway collected 14 points, nine rebounds and five blocked shots. Junior point guard Kynidi Striverson added eight points, eight rebounds, six assists and three steals for the Dragons (13-2, 5-0), who are slated to visit Salem at 1:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon in the de facto MSC championship game.
