Bucs' pride shines through

Once Grand Haven had a firm grasp on what Jenison's offensive attack was going to be, the Wildcats had no chance. The Buccaneers believed Jenison would show a veer offense with a heavy focus on the quarterback option, but after pregame warm-ups, a week full of preparation was scrapped.

“(Jenison’s head coach Irv) Sigler is the son of the Hall of Fame coach who specialized in the flat (Wing) T, so we knew he had that in his background. We kind of had an idea they might show that,” said Grand Haven coach Mike Farley. “They came out and were running it in pregame warm-ups, so our defensive coaches went back in the locker room and made some adjustments.”

After a shaky start that was primarily due to turnovers and penalties, the Bucs buckled down in the second half, holding the visiting Wildcats to zero points and just 80 second-half yards in a 38-14 victory.

The win puts Grand Haven at 3-1 overall and also gives the Bucs their first O-K Red Conference victory after falling at Rockford last week.
