Lady Comets back on winning track, 50-28



After being embarrassed by the number four ranked East Lansing Trojans a week before, the number nine ranked Lady Comets had something to prove to themselves. They did just that as they took the previous loss to heart before cruising past the visiting Holt Rams, 50-28 on Jan. 25.

In fairness to the Comets, the loss to the Trojans was tough to swallow as head coach David Jones team played without the services of leading scorer Lindsay Orwat who was home with the flu and guard Sophie Gozman who was confined to crutches with an ankle injury.

Against the Rams the flu bug showed no signs of attending as Lindsay Orwat responded with a game high 19 points including three-three point baskets. She also hit both of her free throws.

Hannah Orwat also responded with double digits scoring from the outside with 12 points including 4 for 4 from the line and a three pointer of her own.

Grand Ledge held a slim 9-8 lead after the first period and jumped ahead by six points at the half, 21-15.

The Comets opened the game up in the third period as they outscored the Rams, 18-10 to surge ahead by a score of 39-25 with eight minutes to play in the game.

Lauren Bachert added 4 points, Beth Boman 2, Cori Crocker 6, Codie Drake 3, Tess Huelskamp 2 and Lauren Rambo 2.

With the win the Lady Comets go to 11-2 for the year and 6-1 in the CAAC Blue.

The girls enjoyed an open date on Tuesday evening.
