Chargers girls' basketball drop season opener 68-39
A second half surge by Barnesville on Tuesday night downed the Brandon-Evansville girls' basketball team in its season opening home game 68-39.
The Chargers were within striking distance at halftime, only trailing Barnesville 31-25. But 37 second half points by Barnesville were too much to overcome.
"I thought we played well," head coach Dick Simpson said. "It's one of those games where it looks lopsided, but I thought it was closer than the score indicated. We played hard, it just kind of got away from us."
Emma Friedrich led the Chargers with 14 points.
