A big second half propelled the host Western Michigan Christian girls basketball team to a 47-29 non-conference win over Fruitport on Tuesday.

Behind the scoring of Fruitport senior guard Jessica Erny, who led all scorers with 16 points, the Trojans had the lead at the half, 18-17.

But WMC outscored visiting Fruitport 30-11 in the second half, helping the Warriors improve to 3-2 this season.

“We gave up way too many second-chance buckets,” said Fruitport coach Bob German, whose squad falls to 1-3 this season.

Senior forward Rachel Bruinsma led the Warriors with 11 points and 12 rebounds while classmate Vanessa Eekhoff added nine points and a game-high 16 rebounds. Eekhoff also blocked four shots.

Julie Merz dropped in 11 points along with four assists, while Jessica Knoll had two 3-pointers en route to 10 points.

Fruitport also received eight points and four steals from point guard Debbie Pekel.
