HIGHLANDERS HOLD OFF BRAVES

FLOYDS KNOBS — Host Floyd Central outscored Borden 27-10 over the second and third quarters en route to a 46-24 triumph Tuesday night. 

The Highlanders led 8-3 at the end of the first period before outscoring the Braves 14-6 in the second to take a 22-9 lead into the locker room at halftime. Floyd increased its advantage to 35-13 by the end of the third quarter. 

"I didn't think we came with toughness and grit tonight," Borden coach Matt Vick said. "The third quarter killed us because we allowed them to get transition layups. It didn't help that we shot poorly tonight and committed too many turnovers."

Kalissa Fosskuhl scored a game-high 11 points to lead the Highlanders while Keegan Kaiser added nine. 

Christina Knight scored eight points to lead the Braves (8-9), who host Orleans at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. 

Floyd Central (5-12) next plays at Bedford North Lawrence at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
