Tommy Zelenka, Doug Zelenka and James Dyksterhouse added even-strength goals for Grand Haven, which is now 6-0 on the year.

The Buccaneers held a 32-20 advantage in shots, with goalies Zach Kooi and Mark Nalley combining to make 19 saves.

Next up for Grand Haven is rival Mona Shores. The two teams are in the same division this year as Grand Haven has moved up to Tier I. The Sailors eliminated the Buccaneers from last year’s state tournament, handing Grand Haven just its second loss of the season. Wednesday’s game begins at 6:30 p.m. at The Edge Ice Arena in Holland. The game is GHHS Student Night, with all Grand Haven students receiving free admission with a valid student ID.
