Grace came away with the 4-2 victory against crosstown foe Kuyper College. The Tigers opened the game in fine fashion scoring two goals in the first ten minutes. Colt Nieuwenhuis (Martin, Mi) took a Josh Armstrong (Muskegon, Mi) pass and hit a sensational strike past the keeper making it 1-0. Grace would come right back down and score just a minute later when Nathan Colby (Hudsonville, Mi) got past his defender and took a shot which was saved and Asu (Grand Rapids) knocked it home. Grace would do all the scoring in the first half, unfortunetely the third goals was an own goal. Dan Pierpont (Detroit, Mi) went to clear a ball sent in from a free kick, but his header flicked behind him over helpless Grace keeper Kodie Palmer (Jackson, Mi). The Second half proved more of the same. “There wasn’t much rhythm to the game tonight. The things we normally do well we did not, which was a bit dissapointing. We did have some good finishes today. We were not satisfied with some things we did or didn’t do today, but we did enough to ear the victory”, commented Tiger’s Assistant Coach Josh Rumenapp. Niewenhuis would claim his second of the night latching onto a pass from Nathan Colby and finishing nervelessly. The Tigers would score once more with an astonishing strike from Alex Stoddard (Wayland). Dan Pierpont sent in a terrific ball which Stoddard then sent an over the head strike into the net. Coach Buchanan commented on the goal saying, “I’m not sure how he got onto it and hit it, but he certainly did. I have seen Alex score some wild goals here, but it will be hard to beat this one for goal of the year and I look forward to seeing this one on film.” The Tiger’s have improved their record to 4-2 and will face Emmaus Bible College this Saturday at Velting Field for a 12:00 kick off.
