MUSKEGON — Muskegon Catholic put up a strong effort on Friday night, but suffered a 49-32 setback to Grand Rapids Potters House.

The visitors led 13-8 after one quarter and 26-19 at the half. The margin increased to 15 after three quarters.

Carrie Ladd led the Crusaders with 13 points and Claire LaVigne with 10.

“I was really proud of our effort tonight,” MCC coach Adam Callow said. “We knew Potters House was going to be a tough matchup for us coming in, but our girls battled and hung around. They had a big run to start the game and the second half. Those two runs were really the difference in the game.

The Crusaders (6-13, 2-5) will host Western Michigan Christian next Friday.
