Christina Malackanich had seven points while Kyleigh Weck added six.

“Newaygo is the real deal,” Reed City coach Tim Beilfuss said. “They came out, pressured us and forced some turnovers. We had been playing better.”

Evart 54, Pine River 39

EVART – Evart led 14-11 after the first quarter, 28-19 at halftime and 40-27 after the third quarter.

“It was a physical game,” Pine River coach Paula Justin said. “We had just too many turnovers. Evart goes after the ball the entire game and it gets real physical. We just don’t handle it well. This was a little disappointing after our game on Friday when we played with such intensity (in a 36-35 loss to Lake City). We couldn’t match it tonight.”

Evart is 6-5 in the league and 7-5 overall Pine River is 3-6 and 5-8.
