WHAT HAPPENED: The Grand Haven girls lacrosse team traveled to West Ottawa, winning 10-8. They got into a hole early, trailing 6-1. However, they went on a run soon. It was an aggressive game, one that saw few yellow cards.

WHAT IT MEANS: The win shows that no lead is safe in conference play. Yet, it also proves that the Buccaneers can compete hard no matter the condition or who they are playing against.

THEY SAY IT: “We knew we had what it takes,” junior Jocelyn Jensen said. “We wanted to prove to ourselves and fight our hardest and we were encouraging on the sidelines and pushed each other to keep going. We play as a team with intensity and aren’t scared of anyone and can win anything when we trust each other and put our mind to our goals.”

KEY PLAYERS: Senior Chelsea Sportell showed out on defense, pairing with senior Charesse Timreck to fend off the aggressive Panther attack, despite poor conditions. Offensively, senior Ally Kingma was a key catalyst for the attack, scooping up the ground balls throughout the night.

UP NEXT: The Lady Bucs will participate in the annual Battle of the Bridge rivalry on Monday, squaring up with Spring Lake at 7 p.m.
