Grand Haven wins share of OK Red in the Game of the Week

MUSKEGON (WZZM) -- The winner of the Grand Haven Buccaneers-Muskegon Big Reds game Friday would win a share of the O-K Red.

Some highlights:

Grand Haven had the first big play of the game with a quick pass from Adam Poel to Alec Smith.  He fought off a defender all the way to the two yard line.  Two plays later Dalton Stenberg plowed into the endzone to put the Bucs up 7-0.

There was some controversy in the 3rd quarter when Grand Haven punted the ball and Muskegon let it bounce.  The officials said number 5 Jermane Moody kicked the ball and ruled it a turnover.

Grand Haven won the game 41-25.
