    The eventual outcome of the Class 1A Sectional final at Henryville Saturday night ended up a lot differently than it started. Borden (18-5) won an impressive 63-40 decision over fellow southern Athletic Conference member New Washington (14-11).
    New Washington got off to a 3-0 start, after Borden had a turnover and a missed shot at the start.
    Consecutive baskets by Chris Beam and Michael Chester gave Borden a 4-3 lead, and New Washington traveled on the next possession. The Mustangs tied the game at 6-6 on a Devin Freels three point goal.
    After a Borden deuce, Michael Chester hit a trey for the Braves (2:34), and Lee Kirchgessner hit a trey at 1:27 to run the Borden advantage to 14-8.
    New Washington outscored the Braves 5-2 in the final minute of the 1st quarter, and Borden led 16-13 heading into the 2nd period.
    The Braves went on a 5-0 run at the start of the 2nd quarter, forcing a 30 second time out by the Mustangs. First, Borden’s Dalton Wagoner hit an old fashioned three point play, and seconds after a traveling call against New Washington, Beam hit a bucket to give Borden a 21-13 lead headed into the time out.
    Both teams then proceeded to score, but it was still a 5-4 margin in favor of the Braves, and in not making up any ground, New Washington called another 30 second time out with 2:56 in the half, and down 26-17.
    The answer from Borden was to go on a 6-0 run, with buckets from three different players. Their lead was 32-17 by the end of the half.
