Behind the hot shooting of Emerson Goodin, who led Newaygo with a game high 22 points (9-of-11 from the free throw line), 13 rebounds and 4 steals, the Lions jumped out to a commanding 31-11 lead by halftime and were able to gradually extend the lead throughout the second half.
Jaxi Long tossed in 16 points, had 4 steals and grabbed 4 rebounds. Kayla Fisk chipped in with 9 points, 5 rebounds and 4 steals.
“Good win by the girls tonight,” said Newaygo head coach Nathan Thomasma. I thought we ran the floor well and we were able to finish better at the rim in the second half. I thought Emmerson had a great game tonight defensively and offensively. We got another tough game Friday against Grant that we will heave to be ready for.”
Newaygo improves their overall record to 8-1 overall and 4-0 in CSAA Gold conference action. The Lions will host Grant on Friday evening, January 14.
