North Muskegon received contributions from several players as it earned a 60-51 win over visiting Muskegon Catholic in the non conference season opener for both teams on Tuesday night.

“This was a nice win for the Norsemen as I was very happy with how they all played tonight,” North Muskegon coach Jeff Cooke said. “Each player contributed in their own way.”

The Norse jumped out to a 17-9 lead after one quarter and took a 28-22 lead into halftime. NM increased the lead to 47-34 after three quarters.

Sam Powell and Zach Rummery both scored 15 points for the Norse and Adam Edick added 12 points.

“I thought we did a good job in transition and with our guards Rummery, Tony Gordon and Reese McCamant leading us,” Cooke said.

Powell grabbed 12 rebounds for NM and Tony Gordon had five assists.

Cari Campbell led MCC with 13 points.
