REED CITY — Newaygo bolted out to a 3-0 halftime lead on its way to a 5-1 Central State Activities Association (CSAA) victory against Reed City last Monday night.

Quinton Kichak scored both Reed City goals. The second Coyote score was in the final minute of play with Andre’ Burks providing the assist.

“They played hard, they played with their hearts,” Reed City coach Betty Kichak said. “Tri County came out thinking it was going to be another rout. I think they were a little surprised. They haven’t had too many goals against them. Everything I’ve been talking about all season is coming together.”

Troy Giese was the goalkeeper for Reed City.

“He did an awesome job again,” Betty Kichak said.
