NEWAYGO–The Newaygo Lions boys basketball team got by the Morley Stanwood Mohawks on Friday, 64-53, in a Central State Activities Association contest.
The Mohawks got off to a fast start and Newaygo had to play catchup ball for most of the evening.
Newaygo trailed by three at the halftime break, but came out with a solid second-half defensive performance to get the nine-point win.
Newaygo was led by Bryce Decker with 29 points and eight rebounds. Caris Nelson and Josiah Long each tossed in 13 points. Grant Harkness pulled down five rebounds to lead Newaygo.
Newaygo (6-4-4-0) will travel to Lakeview next Friday evening.
