TIGERS TOP BRAVES

BORDEN — Crothersville outscored host Borden 21-5 in the third quarter en route to a 47-41 win in the Southern Athletic Conference opener for both. 

The Braves built a 20-12 halftime lead before the Tigers rallied in the first eight minutes after intermission. 

"The third quarter killed us. We won every other quarter, but we came out flat to start the third," Borden coach Matt Vick said. "We played on our heels that quarter and allowed them to play faster."

The Braves outscored Crothersville 17-14 in the fourth period, but it wasn't enough. 

Christina Knight tallied a team-high 14 points while Emily Cissell and Dayton Nale added six points apiece for Borden (3-2, 0-1), which hosts Shawe Memorial at 6:30 p.m. Monday.
