Reed City soccer team looking to keep improving

REED CITY — Coaches from both sides could see improvement in Reed City’s boys soccer team on Monday following the 6-0 loss to Newaygo in Central State Activities Association action.

“They mercied us at their place,” Reed City coach Doug Emington said. “We’re starting to look toward the (district) tournament (Oct. 17-21). We’re building defensively. In possession, we’re getting better so we’re spending more time with the ball and the opponents don’t have it.”

Jerry Jormanaineen scored three goals for Newaygo. Angel Guevera, Francisco Rios and Josiah Smith had one goal apiece.

“I thought we played well,” Newaygo coach Jason Long said. “Reed City played solid defense. They’re passing the ball well. They’ve come a long way.”

Goalkeeper was Richard Hearth III.

Silas Schultz and  and Greg Randall were keepers for the Coyotes.

Reed City lost on Sept, 28 to Kent City 3-2 in a CSAA game. The two teams went to a shootout, won by Kent City, earlier in the season.

Hunter Morrison and Ty Brocker scored goals for Reed City. Seth Phelps assisted on both.

“That’s a good opponent for us,” Emington said. “They have good potential with their young kids.”

Reed City is home Wednesday against Tri County.
