KINGSLEY — Manistee girls soccer continued to struggle defensively in its 4-0 loss at Kingsley on Wednesday.

The Chippewas (2-10-1) surrendered 3 first-half goals to the Stags, eliciting Manistee head coach Rudy Guillen’s ire in his halftime talk.

“I kind of lost my temper with the girls,” Guillen said. “We’re making the same mistakes again and again and again, and it’s too late in the season to be doing those things wrong. This is ridiculous.”

Guillen said that his back line is mis-timing its offside trap, but tightened things up considerably after the heart-to-heart talk at the break.

“I felt a little bit better about that,” he said. “And we did seem to attack a little bit more, but we just didn;t get a good, clean shot on net.”

Manistee goalkeeper Briana Larsen made 17 saves in the game.

The Chippewas will hit the road again for the next game, at Mason County Eastern onFriday, May 19.

Kyle Peterson was the low Portager at the tournament, shooting a 98. Nick Falk shot a 106, Travis Read carded a 114 and Ben Johnson rounded out the scorers with a round of 121. Dalron Gray shot a 125 and Tighe Pepera carded a 131.

With the result of the meet and the previous league events, Onekama finished its league season in sixth place in the standings, ahead of last-place Benzie Central.

Portagers head coach Mary Jo Zadow said that she was “not overjoyed but not disappointed” with her team’s league place in its first year back in the Northwest Conference.

“Coming back into a league that has been extremely strong, I think we were hoping to find ourselves a place or two higher in the season standings,” Zadow said. “We could have played better, and there’s not a guy on the team who would disagree with that statement. There is a bit of disappointment but a bit of contentment in knowing that we made a good showing.”
