The loss drops Grand Haven to 3-1 in the O-K Red and 24-13-1 overall.
“We came out very strong, controlling the first two games,” said Grand Haven coach Aaron Smaka. “We did not play as aggressively in games 3 and 4. Hudsonville started playing great defense, served us tough, and passed better than we did. We fought back at the end of both games but it was too late.”
Grand Haven thought it had the do-or-die fifth game in its favor with a 10-7 lead, but the Bucs failed to finish off the Eagles and coughed up the match.
