That second quarter stuck out like a sore thumb, however, as Grand Haven was outscored 14-0, allowing the Rams to take a 20-18 lead into the half.
“We played really well in the first quarter and got out to an 18-6 lead,” Grand Haven coach Katie Kowalczyk-Fulmer said. “But Rockford’s a good team. In the second quarter, we weren’t patient offensively. We didn’t take care of the ball, we were trying to force it inside. That and we were taking a lot of quick shots.”

After getting a tongue-lashing at the half, the Bucs (7-1, 2-1 O-K Red) regained their composure and outscored Rockford (2-5, 1-2 O-K Red) 22-13 the rest of the way to secure the win. The Bucs committed just one turnover in the second half and did a better job of executing offensively, Kowalczyk-Fulmer said.
