The Tigers never trailed, using an early 8-0 run to gain control and built up 14-point first half lead before the Falcons rallied to close the haltime deficit to six.
The Falcons would get within five before Jaret Johnson scored six straight points to reignite the Tiger offense and the lead grew larger from there.
Johnson earned player of the game with 21 points, seven rebounds and four steals. Camden Arndt led all scorers with 24 points, five rebounds, and Connor Koebernick filled up the stat sheet with 14 points, four assists and three steals.

BROWERVILLE – Darrin Wibstad’s put-back at the buzzer lifted Brandon-Evansville past Browerville 41-40 on Friday in a gritty boys basketball game.
