Game Recap

Zeeland finishes 7th! At the tail end of a long weekend in East Lansing, the Zeeland women defeated Ann Arbor Huron 5-4 to take home 7th place in a very closely contested tournament. Last night the Chix/Dux fell to Ann Arbor Pioneer 10-7 in what was a 1 goal game until the final 90 seconds and then this morning, they lost to Jenison 10-8 in Overtime.

“It was great to end the season on a high note for these girls. We have been playing our best water polo of the year all weekend and didn’t have a win to show for it. This game was a great way to end a weekend where we were playing our best” -Coach Dave Vruggink

The game started off a little slowly with only Paige Hoeve from Zeeland scoring in the 1st quarter. Huron tallied 2 in the second to take a 2-1 advantage into half time. Zeeland started the third quarter with 2 quick goals from Morgan Bullock followed by a great scrappy goal from Brooke Elenbaas to take a 4-2 lead into the 4th quarter. Huron scored twice to tie it with 2:30 remaining before Paige Hoeve dialed it in from way downtown with a little over a minute left to help seal the victory.

“This team continued to surprise me throughout the year. We broke or tied 5 school records with Morgan Bullock tying Sarah Heemstra for most goals scored (86) and Jessica Dekker for goals in a game (8), Paige Hoeve shattered the school record in steals with 106 and tied Erin Elzinga for steals in a game (8), and Sam Hoeve demolished the record for Shot Blocks with 38 (previous record was 16). These seniors were a special group. Jessica Brown scored big goal after big goal for us in the post season. I am really going to miss this group.” -Coach Dave Vruggink
