REED CITY — It’s 4-0 entering this week for the Reed City girls basketball team.

Reed City trailed 25-17 at halftime but outscored Fremont 28-9 in the second half to take a Central State Activities Association Silver Division 42-37 win on Friday.

“We trailed at halftime but a little halftime talk changed that,” Reed City coach Brian Koopman said. “We came out in the second half and got more active on defense and scored the first six points of the third quarter. From there we were able to take control of the game.”

Kamryn Myers scored 11 points while Emily Libey had nine, Taylor Harrison seven, Sidni Rushford six and Jordyn Storch five for Reed City.

The win puts Reed City 2-0 in the league. The Coyotes were scheduled to be at Lakeview on Tuesday and will play at home Thursday against White Cloud. Both are non-league games.

The White Cloud game was rescheduled from Dec. 12.

“I’m pretty ecstatic,” Koopman said of the 4-0 start. “We had some key kids out our first two games. Alyssa Olds is not at 100 percent yet. She missed the first couple of games. Those are a couple of key players. But it gives a chance for some other kids to come in and get some experience That’s been good.”

“We’ve kept 14 kids,” Koopman said. “They’ve all worked hard and have pushed each other. We have to keep working at it.”

Koopman expected to face a zone against Lakeview and was confident his team could attack it effectively.
