The Brunswick Dragons came into Brewer Friday night looking for a season sweep over the Witches. They got it but it wasn't easy, a 53-51 win in a game filled with offensvie runs by both teams.

Brewer scored the game's first five points.

Brunwick then led 19-10 after one quarter with the help of four 3-pointers from Taran Payne.

The Witches got four field goals from Matt Pushard in the third quarter and made it a three point game entering the fourth quarter.

Down the stretch, the Dragons hit just enough free throws (8-for-17) when the Witches had to foul.

Payne finished with 20 points and Tom Hanson had 12 for Brunwick. Brewer was led by Matt Pushard's 13 and 12 from Carter Smith.

Brunswick is now 6-7, Brewer 7-6.
