Tri-County 37 Newaygo 34
The Lions went head to head with the conference co-leader and while they might have come up a bit short they waged a strong battle against a rugged Viking team.
"We played our first 32 minute game of the 2017 year and it really showed tonight, “said Coach Nate Thomasma. “We played the league leading team right down to the wire. Give TC credit, they made just a few more plays down the stretch than we did."
"We were up 8 going into the 4th quarter but...
...couldn't quite hang on. A couple of steals and layups early in the 4th got TC right back into the ball game."
Madison Bush led the team with 9 points and Madison Cook knocked down 7 points to go with her 6 rebounds. Molly Frisbie also fired in 7 points while pulling down 5 rebounds and Kylee Chesley took charge on the glass for the Lions grabbing 13 boards and snaring a team high 4 steals on defense.
Ashley Bowen and Jenna DeGeer both had 13 points to lead the Vikings.
Newaygo (1-7, 2-10) faces White Cloud (1-5, 2-10) Tuesday before returning to Gold action Friday at Chippewa Hills (1-7, 5-7).
