Reed City makes most of its opportunities in 4-1 win over Benzie Central REED CITY \u2014 The offense came alive for the Reed City Coyotes girls soccer team and the result was a 4-1 victory Monday over Benzie Central. Lindsey Ridderman scored two goals while Kalee Hensel added a goal and assist for the Coyotes and Kendra Repo also scored for a Reed City team that improved to 2-11. Ridderman scored at the 32-minute and 18-minute marks of the first half and was assisted on her second goal by Tia Lintemuth. Morgan Cook had a penalty kick late in the half for the Coyotes and Benzie goalie Ashley Wixon made the clutch save. \u201cWe passed well and we pressured the ball,\u201d said Reed City coach Bryan Hall. \u201cI told the girls we did the things we always do. We just did them a little better.\u201d Reed City junior Kalee Hensel said the team wasn\u2019t doing much differently than it had all season during Monday\u2019s win, outside of finishing scoring chances. \u201cWe played real well together,\u201d Hensel said. \u201cWe play like this every game. It\u2019s just that some teams are tougher. Sometimes we don\u2019t finish our shots. (Monday), we finished and played well together.\u201d Just 47 seconds into the second half, Kalee Hensel broke free and put in her third goal of the season. \u201cI was open so I just shot it,\u201d Hensel smiled. \u201cI was really excited. It\u2019s my first year.\u201d Benzie Central stayed alive midway in the period when Erin Thompson put in the Huskies\u2019 first goal. The Huskies continued to put some pressure on but the Coyote defense prevailed. Kendra Repo poked the ball into the net with 6:18 to play for the Coyotes\u2019 final goal. Hensel drew an assist. \u201cPassing was a key and playing pressure defense all over the field because that keeps the other team from passing the ball,\u201d Hall said. \u201cThe defense was great.\u201d Goalkeepers for the Coyotes were RayAnne Sheldon in the first half and Heather Tacey in the second. Benzie Central falls to 0-12. \u201cWe could have played better,\u201d said Benzie coach Scott Kubit. \u201cThere were moments in the game where we possessed the ball and passed it. We didn\u2019t do it for very long. I was very happy with the first seven minutes of both halves. I thought we possessed (the ball) real well. We created a few chances but didn\u2019t always shoot on them.\u201d Reed City is in action at home again on Wednesday against Lakeview. The junior varsity game starts at 4:30 p.m. followed by the varsity contest at 6 p.m. Visit the photo gallery to see more photos from this game.
