North Muskegon’s Justice Sikkema scored two goals in the second half to put his team up 2-1 with 20 minutes remaining.

But Whitehall answered with a flurry of three goals – one on a penalty kick by Ethan Avery, another by John Gonzalez, and a second goal from DuBois – to steal the victory.

The Vikings managed 15 shots on goal, and Whitehall goalkeeper Wyatt Sherman made five saves.

Whitehall is now 1-2 overall and 1-0 in conference play.
