What Happened: On Homecoming night in Grand Haven, the O-K Red conference leading East Kentwood Falcons defeated the Buccaneers in a lopsided 55-6 victory.

 

What it means: The Grand Haven Buccaneer football team has lost four straight games after starting off 2-0 and falls to 2-4 on the season and 0-4 in conference play.

 

Key moment: The Bucs were forced to punt on their own 26 yard-line where it was blocked by East Kentwood and returned for a touchdown, giving the Falcons a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and keeping the momentum going for the rest of the game.

 

They said it: “They are a very solid team, but I believe we just made too many small mistakes here and there and that costed us the game,” Quarterback Collin Takas said.

 

Up Next: The Buccaneers travel to Caledonia this Friday, October 5 to face the 1-5 (0-4) Fighting Scots.
