Brownsburg took advantage of a 20-point edge in the second and third quarters, pulling away for a 70-56 win against Greenwood on Thursday night.
Greenwood (8-8) was able to capitalize on four missed free throws from Brownsburg in the first quarter, but the Woodmen failed to apply the same pressure that coach Bill Torgerson demanded after the first.
A combined 16 points from Allison Bosse and Ally Becki in the second quarter proved too much to overcome as Brownsburg (11-2) cruised to victory. The pair combined for three 3-point baskets in the period.
Brooklyn Stubblefield’s shot from long range in the second quarter was the only 3-pointer in the first half for Greenwood, which went into the half trailing by 10 points.

In the third quarter, Brownsburg picked up where they left off, outscoring the Woodmen 23-13 behind a combined 15 points from Becki and Kyleigh Leaf.
Greenwood tried to mount a comeback in the fourth but couldn’t get a run going.
“All credit to Brownsburg,” Torgerson said. “We applied pressure like we wanted to, but their shooters were shooting great from downtown.
“I can’t complain about how our girls performed out there tonight. Brownsburg is just a great school. It would have been an upset had we won. We applied pressure, got some turnovers. We just couldn’t convert.”
Becki lead all scorers with 21 points, including 14 in the first half. Leah Moore led all Greenwood scorers with 20 points, with 10 in each half.
Bailee Taft added 13 points and Stubblefield 12 for the Woodmen.
“The girls didn’t do anything wrong,” Torgerson said. “I don’t feel bad for these girls at all. We’ll move on and get ready for next weekend.”
The Woodmen have a week off before playing in the Border Wars Classic on Dec. 28 and 29. The first evening’s games will be played at the Hoosier Gym in Knightstown.
