BUCS SOCCER FALLS TO CALEDONIA
The Grand Haven boys soccer team fell 4-2 to a fast and offensive-minded Caledonia squad Tuesday night in an excessively warm and humid September night.
The O-K Red Conference rivals from Caledonia struck first, just two minutes into the match, and quickly went up 2-0 midway through the first half.
The Bucs rallied with just under 30 seconds in the first half, when senior Sam Scarpino found sophomore Charlie Van Singel on a free kick to bring Grand Haven within a goal at 2-1.
The second half found both teams battling back and forth, but a speedy Caledonia scored two goals before the Bucs could answer with just under 40 seconds left to play on a goal by junior Max Jerovsek.
The Bucks fall to 4-2-1, as they prepare for a trip to East Kentwood on Thursday night.
TROJAN SOCCER EDGED BY JENISON
The Fruitport boys soccer team fell to host Jenison by a score of 3-2 to open O-K Black Conference action Tuesday.
The Trojans jumped out to a lead in the first half, as Will Braun scored the opening goal of the game to give Fruitport an early 1-0 lead. Midway through the second half, Cam Schultz slotted a nice ball to the front of the net and connected with Nate Curtis for Fruitport's second goal of the game.
The Trojans lead was short-lived, however, as the Wildcats quickly responded with three unanswered goals to take the win.
Keeper Connor Hines had 12 saves for the Trojans in net.
Fruitport next takes the field Thursday, as they host Mona Shores at 6:45 p.m.
