Crow’s three homers produced all nine of Grand Haven’s runs. Kaelyn Stafford added three hits for the Bucs while Madi Shumaker got the win on the mound.
Leah Vaughan and Ann Marie Galloway each had two hits for Spring Lake.
Spring Lake turned the tables in Game 2. The Lakers took the lead with four runs in the fourth inning and won 5-4. Vaughn had two hits and pitched the victory for Spring Lake. Molly Poole homered for the Lakers.
Crow hit her fourth home run of the day for Grand Haven. Anna McWatters added a two-run single.
