Grand Haven suffered a disappointing 8-0 setback to host West Ottawa on Thursday. 

“We started slow and were continuously playing from behind,” said Grand Haven coach Jeremy Case. “As you can expect, I am extremely disappointed with our effort. We are a better team than the one that showed up. We failed to create sustained momentum, that coupled with being a step too slow led to some unfavorable scores.”

The Panthers turned in four straight-set victories in singles play, but the closest battles came in doubles, where the Bucs failed to capitalize on potential points. 

At No. 2 doubles, seniors Ryan Peterson and Craig Peplinski went the distance but fell 6-1, 2-6, 6-3. Adam Carlisle and Reid Murphy also won their second set to force a third, but dropped a 7-5 decision and the match to West Ottawa’s Harsh Sehgal and Nick Valentine.

Grand Haven returns to the court on Saturday at the Holland Quad.
