A four-goal second half pushed East Kentwood into the Division 1 state soccer semifinals.

And that means the Grand Haven Bucs’ season has come to an end after the Falcons defeated the Bucs 4-1 on  Saturday in the Division 1 regional title game.

The game was played at Hope College in Holland.

Kevin LaCroix put Grand Haven up 1-0 and that goal gave the Bucs the lead at the half.

In the second half, the Falcons’ Charlie Constantino, Giuseppe Barone, Josh Hagene and TJ Ifaturoti scored single goals to help East Kentwood improve its record to 20-1-4.

Grand Haven finished the season 12-9-3.
