The ‘Dawgs scored first with just seven seconds remaining in the first half.

Grand Haven responded 10 minutes into the second half, when Jon Buitenhuis buried a shot in the back of the net.

The Bucs had several chances to score the game-winner, but could not convert, and Grandville scored off a rebound early in the first of two overtime sessions.

“They defended well for the remainder of the overtime periods,” said Grand Haven coach Aaron Dean.

The Bucs travel to East Kentwood to take on the No. 1-ranked Falcons on Tuesday evening.

Junior Varsity: Grand Haven defeated Grandville, 3-0, thanks to a goal just 90 seconds into the game. Kyle VanDyke, Joe Wisniewski and Cam Lund all scored for the Bucs (6-2-4, 2-1-3 O-K Red), while Garrison Mast and Riley Taylor shared the shutout in goal.

Freshmen: The Bucs settled for a 1-1 tie with Grandville on Thursday. Luke Blauvelt scored on a penalty kick for the Bucs (4-6-1, 2-3-1 O-K Red).


Junior Chaise Schuiteman scored a goal in each half Thursday at Wyoming Tri-Unity Christian to propel the Warriors to a 2-0 win over the Defenders.

WMC is now 8-4-1 overall and remains unbeaten at 4-0-1 in River Valley Conference play.

Schuiteman took a pass from Noah Wildeman just six minutes into the game and buried it in the net. With about 10 minutes left in the contest, he took a long throw in from classmate Alex Rop and slipped it past the keeper.

WMC outshot Tri-Unity 14-8. Warrior keepers Jacob Berens and Christian Rogers combined for the shutout with three and one saves respectively.
