MANISTEE 50, ORCHARD VIEW 21: Host Manistee got a balanced effort en route to posting a comfortable WMC Lakes Division victory.

“We executed well on defense — holding a team to 21 points is hard,” Manistee coach Kenn Kott said. “Lindsey Gardner has been playing well for us lately and also had a big night with a couple of 3s and eight points but also six rebounds and four steals. If we can start getting some production from others, it will make us more consistent. Second time around in the league, so we’ll see where it takes us.”

Jayna Edmondson 16 points

Brooke Jankewietz 10 points

Libby McCarthy 8 rebounds, 4 steals, 4 blocks

MASON COUNTY CENTRAL 53, HOLTON 30: Visiting MCC shook off a slow first quarter, as Holton took a 10-4 lead, and responded with a 17-4 scoring advantage in the second quarter. Jessica Petersen sparked the Spartans in the second quarter with a pair of 3-pointers.

“Really proud of our kids for answering the bell tonight. Holton played an outstanding first quarter and was aggressive on both ends of floor. We were able to compose ourselves, take care of the ball, and played great inside-out basketball the final three quarters,” MCC coach Brian Beebe said.

“Wren (Nelson) and Mallory (Miller) scored the ball well in second half, but a chunk of the credit goes to their teammates for looking for them offensively. Wren had her eighth double-double of the season tonight and Mallory picked her spots well in second half against their zone.”

Wren Nelson 20 points, 11 rebounds, 2 blocks

Mallory Miller 15 points

Grace Weinert 6 points

Eva Hradel 6 points
