A Tough Test

COLOMA — For the first time this season Coloma’s boys basketball team was held to under 70 points. 

The Comets faced a tough test against South Haven’s defense, but did just enough to hold on for a 62-55 home victory. 

“I felt we did well keeping our composure when things got chippy and when they made a run at the end hitting four 3-pointers to tie the game,” Coloma coach Paul Marfia said. “They broke us down and we will live and learn. I knew this would be a good, early test for us.”

The Comets (5-0) are averaging 74.6 points per game so far. Junior standout Zach Goodline continues to lead Coloma, and scored 23 points for the Comets. 

Phillip Caldwell and Robbie Schroder also scored big, with Caldwell netting 13 points. Schroder earned a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. 

South Haven (1-5) is still struggling with size and experience. However, small forward Caskadara Smith continues to carry the Rams. 

He scored a game-high 25 points. Caleb Ford added 12 and Zander Russell contributed 11 points. 

“South Haven has to be one of the best 1-4 teams in the state,” Marfia said. “We have to be one of the worse 5-0 teams. I really like my team and how much we have grown, (but) we have a long ways to go. (We) are going to do it together, take a couple days off and come back on Tuesday to get better.”
