Grand Haven lost at Kentwood earlier this year, accounting for the Falcons’ lone O-K Red win of the season.
Friday was an entirely different story, thanks to a huge night from senior Taylor Craymer.
Craymer buried three first-half 3-pointers and scored all 17 of her points before halftime, launching the Buccaneers past the overmatched Falcons, 55-33.
“It was a lot of revenge, a lot of talk about how this time we have to come out and really go after it,” said Craymer, who played on a sprained ankle the first time the two teams met. “That was frustrating. I couldn’t drive as much, and I couldn’t go off two feet as well.”
Friday’s win was the Bucs’ second consecutive impressive victory. Those wins came on the heels of two losses in three games for the Bucs, who came into the season with a 51-game winning streak.
“It’s one of those things where it’s frustrating when we lose, then come back strong,” Craymer said. “We’re trying to get this going where we don’t take any more steps back. We just keep moving forward.”
It was full steam ahead against the Falcons on Friday, and several different Buccaneers got into the action.
