Tribune Staff • Aug 31, 2017 at 12:15 AM

The Grand Haven boys soccer team took their first loss of the season against O-K Red Conference foe East Kentwood on Wednesday, 2-3.

The Bucs struck first at home with a Joe Walsh goal, assisted by Mason Mahacek. The Falcons responded immediately, scoring from the kickoff.

Five minutes later, Walsh and Mahacek doubled-down, repeating their first goal. Like clockwork, East Kentwood was able to tie the game before halftime, capitalizing on an indirect freekick in the penalty box.

The Falcons netted the game winner in the second half on a blistering, well-placed shot, beating a solid effort by keeper Filiberto Juarez.

Grand Haven is now 4-0-1 on the season and 1-1 in the O-K Red. They return to the pitch to face Spring Lake at home on Sept. 5.
