But I could see they had a lot of opportunities that didn\u2019t quite connect but were close. They started getting some of those together in the second half. We couldn\u2019t keep up with their speed and they were able to put some shots on.\u201d Kyla Saldana scored the only goal in the first half for Newaygo (1-1-1).

Jenna Janke was the winning goalkeeper Discipline was a key factor for his team, Newaygo coach Jason Long said. \u201cWe had some trouble with being offsides in the first half and being disciplined and timing our runs,\u201d Long said. \u201cThat was a big key in the second half. We stayed onside and had some good shots.\u201d Pratt scored her second goal at the 37:41 mark of the second half. Auw and Villarreal put the game away with goals within two minutes of each other midway in the second half for a 4-0 lead. \u201cThey played us real tough in the first half,\u201d Long said. \u201cIt was real competitive.\u201d \u201cI thought we played well,\u201d Hall said. \u201cWe attacked the ball well. We put some passes together on our own and moved the ball up and down the field. I\u2019m seeing some things coming together that we\u2019re working on. We got several offsides calls (against Newaygo). We\u2019ve worked on that some. That paid off for us.\u201d Reed City goalkeeper Brenna Westhoff, was busy for most of the game and made some key saves. \u201cLauren Voelker had a very good game,\u201d Hall said. \u201cShe fills a lot of positions for us.
