Mona Shores goalie Nate Rabbit made 23 saves to record the shutout while Grand Haven goalie Mark Nalley made 27 stops on 30 shots faces.

The Sailors scored once in each period, starting with Austin Swiatek’s goal in the opening period.

In the second, Gage Veltman lit the lamp, then Adam Ulfsas scored to make it 3-0 in the third.

Grand Haven had its chances on the power play as Mona Shores racked up 32 penalty minutes in the contest, but the Bucs couldn’t convert.

With the loss, Grand Haven falls to 4-2-2 overall and 1-2-1 in O-K Rainbow Tier I action.
