Revenge wasn’t on the Buccaneers’ girls basketball team’s mind on Tuesday night.
It was more about redemption.
Grand Haven wanted to prove that last week’s Senior Night loss to Grandville was a fluke, and the Buccaneers did just that by scoring a 42-32 win at Grandville on Tuesday.
“Our girls knew we couldn’t have played much worse than we did against them last week, so it was nice to go in there and take care of business,” said coach Katie Kowalczyk-Fulmer, whose team is now 15-4 overall and 6-3 in O-K Red games.
“We played with more of a sense of urgency, and we shot the ball better.”
Taylor Craymer got the Bucs going early as she knocked down three second-quarter 3-pointers and finished with 13 of her 17 points in the first half.
In the second half, it was all Amanda Merz as the Bucs’ point guard poured in 15 of her 17 points after halftime, including a 7-for-8 showing from the free throw line.
Michala Ringquist came off the bench and gave the Bucs a spark defensively with a pair of steals.
