The Maroons put on a lot of pressure in the game, especially in the first half but the Dutch found a way to pull out the win in a game that featured the top two ranked teams in the state in division two.
"Luckily we were able to turn things around a little bit in the second half," Holland head coach Greg Ceithaml said. "Enought to put one in but I give them a lot of credit Holland Christian played with a lot of heart and we had trouble matching that tonight to be honest."
Holland advances to the regional tournament next week at Vicksburg to play Gull Lake.
