FRUITPORT–The Fruitport Trojans got off to a cold start on Friday evening and dropped a 65-34 decision to the Hudsonville Unity Christian Crusaders.

The OK-Blue contest also was Senior Night at Fruitport.

“A cold start for us tonight, combined with Unity playing very well, led to this lopsided score,” Fruitport coach Steve Erny said. “Now is the time of the year to bounce back quickly and get ready for the tournament.”

Unity Christian jumped out to a 12-5 lead by the end of the first quarter and increased it to 27-10 at the half. Unity outscored Fruitport 15-5 in the second quarter.

The Trojans continued to fall behind in the third period as the Crusaders built a commanding 48-25 lead going into the fourth quarter.

Andrew Spyke led Fruitport with 10 points. Paschal Jolman tossed in eight points while Bode Anspach finished with seven points.
“(Seniors) Bode Anspach, Collin Jolman, Paschal Jolman, and Andrew Spyke is a group that has committed to Fruitport basketball and have seen in their four years a lot of improvement from year to year,” Erny said. “We will miss them going forward but wish them the absolute best as they move on to their next adventures.”
Fruitport (12-9, 7-7) will travel to Muskegon Catholic on Tuesday evening.
