Aidan Pike (103 lbs.) scored a pinfall win in 29 seconds to get the Buccaneers going early, and teammate Riley Rhone (112 lbs.) added to his hot streak with a pinfall win in 1:15 to give Grand Haven an early 12-0 lead.

The Eagles would get back on track, however, and win the next four matches to cut the lead to 27-23 with five matches to go.

Grand Haven's Kaleb Butcher would score a 12-8 decision at 171 lbs., but that would be the victory the Bucs would score on the night, as Hudsonville finished the match with three straight pinfall wins to escape with a 41-30 win.
