LUDINGTON — Whitehall made the trek to Ludington for a West Michigan Conference girls soccer game Monday afternoon and came away with a rugged 1-0 victory.

It was cold, windy and snowing, which made playing more difficult.
Both teams shined on defense and limited the number of scoring chances in the contest.
“It was a pretty tough, competitive game,” said Ludington coach Kris Anderson. “I felt there were stretches where we really maintained possession and created some dangerous opportunities to put ourselves in position to come away with a victory.
“But we just couldn’t put a ball in the back of the net tonight,” he said. “Whitehall’s keeper did a good job and we just kind of missed on some opportunities that we had. We need to finish and capitalize on the chances when they are few and far between. You just have to get that little extra effort or whatever it takes.”
Ludington goalkeeper Cambria Britton saw only six shots thanks to the solid work of the Orioles’ defenders and midfielders. She had five saves.
The Orioles (1-4, 0-2) are scheduled to host Oakridge in another WMC game Wednesday.
