    Borden fell behind early in a game at Christian Academy Indiana (CAI) Tuesday, May 5, but mounted a comeback that ultimately fell short, and ended up losing 4-3 in a look at two Class 1A sectional opponents about three weeks before the sectional.
    CAI had scored lone runs in the bottom of the 1st and 3rd innings, but it wasn’t until the bottom of the 5th frame that the Warriors really did the damage to the Braves.
    CAI loaded the bases with one out, when two more CAI runs went across home plate.
    Borden answered with three runs in the top of the 6th inning.
    Kamm Thompson led off with a double, and then stole third base. Ethan Little then pop flied to first base for the first out. Drake Potts then singled in Thompson.
    Dylan Martin then hit a two-RBI home run to get the Braves within one run.
    As it turns out, they were unable to make it up, and the Warriors took the contest.
    Borden coach Brian Agnew was glad to see the team attempt to come back, but he wished it had been a little bit bigger come back.
    “It was good to see us mount some sort of come back, and not just lay down,” Agnew said. “Sometimes, we wait a while to mount that effort.”
    Saturday, the team defeated Class 4A Floyd Central, in a game that had been thrown together to make up for rain cancelled games that both teams have seen pile up in ever larger numbers this spring.
    “It was kind of thrown together,” admitted Agnew.
    Borden was to have played Crothersville in a double header Saturday at Borden, but Crothersville declined to play the second game. Since the umpires had already been hired for the second game, they were the ones used when Borden traveled to Floyd for their match up a little later in the afternoon.
    Borden came out of the game with the Highlanders with an 8-7 win.
    Agnew wasn’t blowing too much smoke over the win.
    “If we played that game 100 times, that’d be the only time we win,” said Agnew.
    “We played a perfect game, and we caught them off guard.”
