BROWNSTOWN — Seymour outscored Brownstown Central 12-5 during the final three minutes of Thursday night’s Jackson County girls basketball rivalry game to register a 66-59 win.
Visiting Seymour held a 47-42 lead entering the fourth quarter before Ally Lorenzo, Brooke Ebbing and Trinity Booher made 3-point baskets in the first two minutes to give the host Braves a 51-47 lead.
Seymour then went on a 7-0 run and used a layup by Morgan Ritz to take a 54-51 lead with 4:40 remaining.
“I thought we did a lot of things very well tonight,” Seymour coach Jason Longmeier said. “We probably had some lapses in the zone, and that’s what happens when you have these types of games. When our team got down four, there was no quit in them.
“We came back and we answered the bell just like that,” he said.
“We hit two huge shots there.”
Seymour led 21-13 at the end of the first quarter and 34-28 at the half.
“I felt like we played hard the entire game except for that one span there where we kind of maybe stood around a little bit and we couldn’t buy a basket,” Brownstown coach Karla Rieckers said.
“We missed little bunny shots that we needed to make and we didn’t make. I think that goes back to this was Seymour’s seventh game and just our third game. I think we’ve played better every game so far.”
Emilee Pollmann was high scorer for the Owls (6-1) with 18 points, and Maci Lubker scored 17. Ebbing topped the Braves (2-1) with 20 points, and Booher and Jaelyn Reynolds each scored 10.
