The Raiders bested Galena 2-1 on the road Saturday afternoon.
“We build confidence and get better and take it one game and one practice session at a time,” Reed coach Jason Saville said.
Reed secured a 2-0 lead in the first half. Taylor Anderson scored the Raiders first goal in the 17th minute, and Ashlee Saville scored Reed’s final goal in the 28th minute.
“I think we’re getting better. We all worked hard,” Anderson said.
In the second half, Galena’s Ashley Agrilla put Galena on the board in the 44th minute, but Galena was unable to make a comeback the rest of the game.
“I thought it was the first time in four years we beat Galena,” Saville said.
Reed (2-3-0, 2-3-0) hosts Wooster next Tuesday.

The Cougs will try to bounce back to .500 on the season Tuesday night at Galena.
