BCCH 7th Wins Again, 8th Loses

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Beecher City/Cowden-Herrick split again on Thursday, this time with Brownstown/St. Elmo. BCCH 7th won, 30-25, while BCCH 8th lost, 41-13.

The 7th grade game was a reversal of fortune that almost tipped the scales in Brownstown's favor. BCCH used an 18-5 run in the 1st to launch themselves into the lead.

They extended the wound by half with a 6-1 2nd quarter run and led by 18 points at the break, 24-6.

Then someone flipped the coin. Brownstown won a defensive 3rd period, 4-1 and cut the BCCH lead to 15 points heading into the fateful 4th, 25-10.

Brownstown put on a  furious 4th, almost matching BCCH's 1st period outburst. Brownstown raced to the final buzzer with a 15-5 run. That still left them five points short of a complete comeback.

Becca Morgason and Lauren Wojcik led BCCH with eight points, each. Hailey Persinger followed with five points. Eight different Eagles scored. B/St E had just five scorers in balanced scoring. Three players had six points and one with five.
