Britton-Hecla’s Jayden Bender launched this shot at the buzzer against Sisseton last week Tuesday.

Lady Braves Come Close Twice

The Britton-Hecla girls basketball team battled down to the wire in two of its three games in the past week but wasn’t able to get into the win column.

Aberdeen Christian broke a 40-40 tie by hitting a free throw in the final seconds to post a 41-40 win on Saturday, Sargent Central scored the final four points of the game for a 37-32 victory on Thursday, and Sisseton rolled to a 45-20 win last week Tuesday.

This week the lady Braves, now 1-15, play at Milbank on Thursday. Tri-State comes to town for a 6 p.m. contest on Friday, and the local cagers travel to Hamlin for a doubleheader with the boys on Tuesday (JV boys 5:15 p.m.).
