REED CITY — The Ludington Orioles defeated host Reed City in a 27-14 non-conference girls basketball matchup on Tuesday.

The Orioles jumped on the Coyotes for an 11-4 advantage in the first quarter, and outscored Reed City, 7-1 in the second to build an 18-5 halftime lead.

“I was really pleased with our ability to disrupt,” said Ludington coach Warren Stowe. “Our guards were relentless with pressure all night, and made it hard for Reed City to get into their stuff. Offensively, we missed a bunch of shots that we normally make, especially in transition.”

Reed City outscored Ludington, 5-4 in the third, but the Orioles maintained a 22-10 lead going into the fourth and then had a 5-4 edge over the final eight minutes.

Jordyn Anderson scored eight points to lead Ludington, followed by Keelyn Laird and Emma McKinley with five apiece, while Olivia Lynn and Elianna Jeruzal scored four points each.

The Orioles (6-3) return to West Michigan Conference Lakes Division action on Thursday night hosting Manistee.
