What Happened: To open the week of play, Grand Haven’s varsity girls soccer team traveled to East Kentwood. The Buccaneers came away victorious, winning 2-0. Sophomore goalie Hannah Brackenbury was excellent in the net, making key saves to preserve the team’s lead. Meanwhile, the dynamic duo of sophomore forward Jennifer Dear and junior forward Alli Keyser continue to dominate, as Keyser had the squad’s two goals and both were assisted by Dear. Two days later, the Lady Bucs hosted non-conference foe Jenison, winning 2-0 once more. This time, Dear led the way with the two lone goals and Brackenbury continued her stellar play with another shutout performance.

They Said It: “I think we are really starting to come together as a team,” sophomore defender Olivia Striegle said. “[We are] growing with a lot of combination plays. We still have to improve our communication, but it’s something we are working on.”

Up Next: After canceled games vs. Mona Shores and at West Ottawa, the team will hope for some good weather for their Thursday match at Hudsonville.
