Reed broke open a tight game by reeling off the first 16 points of the third period. Manogue trailed by nine at the half, 34-25, but that's as good as it got for the host Miners.
“We just came out after halftime flat,” Manogue coach Richard Shaw said. “Reed came out and said they weren't going to be denied today. That's where we lost it. We couldn't ever get it under control after that.”
Reed held Manogue scoreless through the first five minutes of the second half and was never really threatened again. Sierra Hooft dropped in a layup at the 3:28 mark of the third period to cap Reed's key outburst. Reed wound up outscoring Manogue 20-6 in the telltale third period.
“I was telling our girls after the game that it took us a whole half to get in sync,” Reed coach Sara Schopper said. “We came after halftime, made some adjustments and got some easy layups.”
Manogue's Amy Yeager dropped a 3-point bomb at the 2:16 mark of the first period. That got the Miners within two, 11-9. The game was never that close again as Reed responded with a 9-1 run capped by a Joanna Phillips 3-pointer with 51 seconds remaining in the initial period.
Reed got up 28-12 after back-to-back layups by Danielle Peacon left five minutes to go before halftime. Manogue began to chip away Gabbi Concepcion canned four straight free throws and then got a layup to fall to start a 16-6 Miners run that ended the second quarter.
Concepcion finished with 11 points for Manogue (0-1). Yeager led the Miners in scoring with 14 points.
Peacon poured in 23 points to lead all scorers. Micah Walker also found double digits in the scoring column for Reed, contributing 15 points to the winning cause.
Reed (1-0) will host Galena in its next game, Friday at 7 p.m.
