Houghton girls struggle in 57-30 loss to West Iron County

IRON RIVER — A rough shooting night doomed the Houghton Gremlins in a 57-30 West-PAC loss to the West Iron County Wykons Friday in Iron River.

Houghton shot 8 of 50 overall (16 percent) and was 2 of 16 from 3. The Gremlins also had 25 turnovers.

“I don’t know if our kids got off the bus today,” Houghton coach Julie Filpus said. “We played hard, but between the turnovers and the shooting percentage, we couldn’t get anything going.

“They were good shots. Certainly shots our kids could hit, but it wasn’t the case tonight.”

A two-point second quarter for Houghton allowed WIC to take a 26-9 lead into halftime.

Next, Houghton (6-4, 3-1) hosts Hancock on Monday.
