MANISTEE — Manistee girls soccer picked up its second big win in as many days with an 8-0 victory over Mason County Central on Tuesday.

Tatum Liston and Olivia Smith each scored two goals, Makayla Alcayde scored a goal and assisted on two others, and Alora Sundbeck, Lily Sandstedt and Heidi Feliczak each scored once in the game, which was ended with about 22 minutes left due to mercy rule.

Manistee head coach Jaclyn Trahan liked that her team got goals from six different players in the game.

“The girls are excited,” Trahan said. “We wanted to work on rotating people through in different areas, work on holding possession and different combinations up top.”

Chippewas keeper Lauren Guenthardt was not called upon to make a save in the contest, which improved the team’s record to 7-3.

Manistee will be back in action on Friday, again at home, in a non-league game against Kingsley.

Bobcats fall hard at Gladwin

GLADWIN — Brethren girls soccer had a tough day at the office Tuesday, losing at Gladwin 8-0.

The game, which dropped Brethren’s record to 2-5-3, ended by mercy rule with less than a minute to play.

Bobcats head coach Krystal Magee said that her team simply did not play well.

“They (Gladwin) are not even close to eight goals better than we are,” Magee said. “I’m having a hard time pinpointing one specific thing that made them eight goals better than us. It’s definitely a discouraging loss.”

Brethren goalkeeper Kennadey Smith made three saves in the game.

The Bobcats will have a chance to get back on track on Thursday, May 17, when they host Mason County Eastern.

Onekama golfers play twice in one day

CEDAR, Mich. — Onekama’s golf team had an unusual day on Tuesday, playing two different 9-hole tournaments at two different courses.

The Portagers played a morning nine at the Leland Country Club in Leland and then hit the road for a “back nine” at Manitou Passage in Cedar.

First, Onekama finished sixth out of seven teams in Leland, shooting a team score of 214.

Ben Johnson led the way with a 52 in the match, followed by Jackson Gutowski’s 53, Travis Reed shot a 54 and Hayden Platz carded a 55.

In the afternoon, Onekama tied for fourth place with Maple City Glen Lake, shooting a team score of 183 at Manitou Passage, their lowest 9-hole team score of the season.

Nick Falk led the way with a 44. Johnson shot 45, Reed carded a 46 and Delron Gray rounded out the scorers with a 48.

Onekama head coach Tom Bromley said that part of the reason for the disparity of scores in the two outings was the weather.

“We got up to Leland and it was 49 degrees,” Bromley said. “We had a cold wind coming off the lakes up there. When we moved to Manitou Passage it warmed up a little bit. Plus, we’d got a round in, so we were warmed up and ready to play.”

Onekama softball blitzed by Kingsley

ONEKAMA — Onekama softball ran into a buzzsaw in its Northwest Conference doubleheader against Kingsley on Tuesday, losing both games by the scores of 19-0 and 21-4.

While beating Kingsley would be a tall order for the young Portagers, Onekama head coach Rob Johnson said that he was disappointed that his team seemingly regressed from the progress they have made this season.

“We’re going backwards with some of our fundamentals,” Johnson said. “So we need to step back a little bit and get that corrected before we got to the postseason.”

Zoe Morley pitched both games for the Portagers, giving up 11 hits and nine walks in the first game and 18 hits and 8 walks in the second.

Ellie Magnan and Hanna Hughes had Onekama’s only two hits in the opener. Hope Showalter had two hits and Hughes, Morley and Freja Andersen had one each in the nightcap.

“Kingsley just hit the ball hard where we weren’t,” Johnson said. “We just have to do those fundamental things, getting the ball back into the infield, knocking the ball down to make a play.”

Onekama will hit the road to Custer to face Mason County Eastern on Thursday, May 17.
