A slow first quarter cost McBain Northern Michigan Christian a chance at a Highland Conference win Thursday night. The Comets, serving as hosts to Beal City in their first game since the new year, came up empty despite a good effort, 44-36.

“It was an ugly game, coming off break and being a little shorthanded,” head coach Shawn Pattee said. “We always play tough team defense so that gave us a chance. We did not have movement on offense though and we were not lockd in from warm-ups. We have to be locked in to give us a chance in the Highland.”

The Aggies led 9-2 after a low-scoring first quarter and held a 21-12 advantage by the half.

Leading the way was Grant Pogue with 11 points, Alex Rozeveld had eight and Ezra Dieterman hauled in seven rebounds.
NMC (3-5 overall) was at Pine River on Thursday, heads to Marion on Monday and plays in McBain Friday.

“We are going to get back into our routine and get better every practice,” Pattee said.
