Grand Haven's varsity football team won its season opener, 17-14, at Doc Pierce Field on Thursday night. (Tribune photos/Matt DeYoung)
What an awesome game. Both teams fought up until the very end. They appeared to be pretty evenly matched and the game could've went either way. They had a very nice tribute to Doc Pierce. I met him a few times and he was truly a wonderful person. Huge turnout of GH fans at Fruitport. Standing room only and even that was crowded, nice to see such great support from both communities.
Why does G.H have two quarterbacks? It seemed like they were subbing every other play. I don't know a lot about football, but never have seen this in a high school game.
Yea it was a Great game,But I was surprised,the pregame show talked alot about no turnovers and marching down the feild,it didn't workout quite like that, they almost lost. The reason they use two QB'S they both are good but have diffrent skils,I think it is a smsrt move.The Coach said youll see some diffrent things.
I really want to go to the game in E.Lansing but it's a 90 min drive,it whould be nice if they had a charter bus for the fan's, I would be willing to pay a fair, if anyone hears of this please post it.
Bucs did not look good. Barely escaped with a win thanks to Fruitport choking on the goal line at the end of the game. Passing game is nonexistant. If this is how we play against a small town team like it will be ugly when we play a real team like Rockford.
Your right on moot,Defence couldn't stop them,Fruitport marched down the feild,We were told we would see somthinng new,what I seen was the same up the middle Farley plays, so are they looking for a new coach for next year? For the last five years I have gone to the games,I am an old Buc,myself,but for thr past three years I hear the coach,s show,the pre game show and the pep rally show and I am really starting to wonder,we had two loosing seasons and this one don't look good.Do we really have the right staft,look how the new coach turned E Kentwood around,look how the Big Reds came back, makes you wonder if we are being sold a bill of goods.
