Ludington soccer flies past Coyotes, 8-0

REED CITY — It wasn’t the way coach Bryan Hall wanted his girls soccer team to end the regular season going into the district next week.
But the Reed City coach remains confident his team can have a strong postseason going into next week.
Ludington scored four goals in each half in an 8-0 non-league victory Thursday night at Reed City. Clare Paxton wound up with three goals for the Orioles while Bele Wollesen had two goals.
Reed City fell to 5-8-2.
“We lost 7-0 to them last year,” said Hall. “We knew they were going to be solid. It’s tough to play a team like that going into districts. You have to learn a good team is going to force errors and capitalize off of them. They certainly did.”
Ludington improved to 9-11-2.
“I wish we played just a little bit quicker,” said Ludington coach Kris Anderson. “The second half, especially, we created some opportunities and finished well. It’s a good ending to the season going into districts, finishing strong.”
Reed City is home 6 p.m. Tuesday to play Fremont in a district game.
“They’re not as good as they’ve been in the past but they’re still good,” Hall said. “They beat Manistee 1-0 and we lost to Manistee 1-0. We’ll have to play a very good game. But we’re capable of it.”
