Newaygo 7, Chippewa Hills 1

Chippewa Hills fell to 4-11 overall and 0-8 in the Central State Activities Association with that loss to Newaygo on Friday.

“We had a solid defense played by Madison Brewer and Hayley Gomber,” Chippewa Hills coach Jay Franks said. “The goal was defended by Karley Densmore who made 23 saves. Karley now has 268 saves during the year, qualifying her for the top six in the MHSAA Book of Records for most saves in a season. She needs 250 to qualify.

“Offensively, Melinda Burgess scored our goal tonight. This marks his 20 goals this season. We fought against many adversities tonight and played until the end. We were trying to compete, but unfortunately we couldn’t keep up with them.

Chippewa Hills is at home against Hart on Monday at 7 p.m.

“It’s an extra game since we didn’t qualify for the CSAA tournament,” Franks said.


The headline for Saturday’s sports section on Fischer Morrison should have read “Reed City golfer to try out for Ferris State men’s team.” He has to try before he makes the team.
