The Lions outscored the Packers 16-14 in the opening quarter, but couldn’t hold on after Fremont scored 23 to close out the game and take the win 62-52.
Connor Swinehart had a season high 27 points and also pulled down 12 rebounds. Mitch Karip added 12 points but it wasn’t enough for the Lions. “Fremont made more plays during the fourth quarter to earn the win,” Coach Barrette.
Newaygo will travel to Tri-County on Tuesday night and play the second game of a Varsity double header. Tip-off is set for 7pm for the boys, and 5:30 for the girls.
