The Fruitport Trojans boys soccer team narrowly pulled out a 1-1 tie after a visit to Holland Christian in O-K Blue conference play on Wednesday.

Trailing 1-0 with 10 minutes left in the game, Fruitport’s Bode Anspach tied the score on a headshot off a Jackson Rebone corner kick. 

Trojan goalie Justin Laus made eight saves on the day.

“To come on the road and earn a point against a team who is arguably one of the better teams in the state, is a solid result for us,” said Hazekamp. “I’m so proud of the work rate and toughness of all my guys.”

Coach Hazekamp gave credit to Jayce Thornton, Ryan Laus, Zach Shaefer and the back line of Brady Brown, Noah Fehler, Tyler Kelly and Jaxon Deneen for their special efforts.

The tie moves Fruitport’s record to 6-0-1 overall. 

The Trojans stay home to battle conference rival Spring Lake on Friday.
