The Newaygo Lions put in an excellent team effort defeating Chip Hills 8-0. Newaygo moved the ball well throughout the midfield, switching the ball from side to side until finding the run they wanted to put the ball in the net. Jaxi Long had 2 goals and 2 assists, Alexandra Son found the back of the net twice, and Grace Painter finished with a hat trick plus one netting 4 goals and adding 2 assists. The Lady Lions improved to 9-1-2 on the season and will face the winner of the Kent City/TriCounty game.
Coach Painter “Coming off the loss to Big Rapids, it was important for our girls to gain back some confidence. Their teamwork tonight was rewarded with a win and they are looking forward to their next match up.”
