WHAT HAPPENED: The Grand Haven varsity girls lacrosse team travelled to Spring Lake for the annual Battle of the Bridge contest. The game was played sloppily and resulted in a 12-8 loss.

THEY SAID IT: “We played with moments of brilliance,” coach Mark Robertson said. “The rest of the game was a little sloppy coming off of ‘prom break’ but we are really looking to write the ship again before playoffs to give the best effort we can. This was another conference game but we need to win many of the next 10 we have.”

KEY MOMENT: Senior Ally Kingma got dealt her second yellow card, which got her kicked out. Due to that, it hurt the Lady Bucs offensively for the rest of the game, along with their transition game.

KEY PLAYERS: Sophomore goalie Hannah Mae Evans made some key saves and was vital in keeping the Bucs in the game. Senior Madison Holub played great defense and played well in transition. Sophomore Sydney Robinson led the way offensively with two goals and also played good transition game.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN: They are 7-8 on the season and are fourth in the OK Red Conference.

UP NEXT: The Lady Bucs will be squaring off against league-leading team Lowell at home on Wednesday May 7 at 7 p.m.
