MUSKEGON — The Muskegon Catholic Crusader girls fell behind by double digits in the first half and could not recover on Friday night.

MCC (4-10, 0-3) fell to West Michigan Aviation Academy, 36-25.

The Crusaders trailed 16-6 after one quarter and 27-13 at the half. MCC scored just two points in the third quarter and trailed 34-15 with one quarter left.

Claire LaVigne led MCC with 11 points.

“We played a much better second half, defensively,” MCC coach Adam Callow said. “We were led by Mallory Rich’s great effort. We just couldn’t hit enough shots to get back into it.”

Muskegon Catholic Central travels to Fruitport Calvary on Tuesday.
