A slow start by the Muskegon Community College women’s basketball team was just a minor bump in the road on Saturday.

Kirtland led by as many as 12 points before MCC  roared back for a 74-58 victory.

“Our Jayhawks were able to pick up their defensive intensity,” MCC assistant coach Sandra Bush said. The Jayhawks were within a point at 31-30 at the half.

Jazmyn Good the scoring attack for the Jayhawks with 27 points. Lindsey Burnside had another standout game for the Jayhawks with 13 points, 18 rebounds and five blocks. Sonnie Kurnat added six assists and Quaneshia McBride dished out five assists.

“We started out rough in the beginning and after halftime we came out with heart and played together as a team,” Burnside said. “Everyone gave it their all.”

“We stayed calm and kept our poise knowing we were down the whole game,” Good said. ” Coach Jenkins made a good decision to press which allowed us to get a lot of steals and come back and win the game.”
