REMUS \u2014 Reed City\u2019s girls basketball team made it two straight wins in the Central State Activities Gold Division with a 46-33 win on Friday over Chippewa Hills. The Coyotes overcame early deficits to notch the win. \u201cWe\u2019re starting off the new year well, 2-0,\u201d Reed City coach Brian Koopman smiled. Jenna Lentz had a lay-up late in the first quarter to give the Warriors a 13-11 lead. However, the Coyotes started gaining control in the second quarter. Alanna Nelson\u2019s 3-pointer gave the Coyotes a 17-15 edge. Emily Libey scored for a 24-17 Coyote lead. The Warriors came back with baskets from Rachel Lobert and Alexis Issette to cut the Coyote lead to 24-22 at halftime. Libey had 12 points by halftime while Issette had eight. \u201cWe started picking up their point guard and got pressure on her,\u201d Koopman said. \u201cIn the third period, we came out full court and didn\u2019t want to allow them to set up their offense and get screens. I thought the kids did a great job of that. I thought we rebounded the ball well.\u201d Issette netted a 3-pointer at 3:06 of the third putting Reed City up 30-25. Jordyn Storch\u2019s two free throws at 2:10 gave Reed City a 32-25 lead. Alexis Issette then hit another 3-pointer for the Warriors, who trailed 34-28 going into the fourth. Libey\u2019s putback gave Reed City a 38-28 lead midway in the fourth. Kamryn Myers added two Reed City free throws moments, followed by two from Libey, for a 14-point bulge. Issette\u2019s triple at 1:45 cut it to 44-33, but time ran out on the Warriors. \u201cIn the first half, we did well, but in the second half, we kind of slowed down,\u201d Chippewa Hills coach CJ Blaha said. \u201cWe just have to watch film and see what we can get better at.\u201d \u201cWe struggled offensively shooting the ball,\u201d Koopman said. \u201cBut our defense and free throws won the game.\u201d Libey finsihed with 15 points while Storch and Alyssa Olds had seven. \u201cWe did a good job to open up the third quarter and get a lead,\u201d Koopman said. The Coyotes (4-4, 2-2) on Wednesday will host Big Rapids, weather permitting. They are at Central Montcalm this Friday.
