HOLLAND, Mich. (AP) - A college soccer field with one goal in the western Michigan city of Holland and the other officially located in an adjoining township is getting united.

The Holland Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/1ODmoq3 ) most of the field at Hope College’s Van Andel Soccer Stadium was in Holland, but a portion including one goal was in Ottawa County’s Holland Township.

Township Supervisor Terry Nienhuis noted: “I don’t know if there’s any player that’s confused by that.” Still, the communities agreed this week that the township’s portion would become part of the city.

Hope College initially brought the request to the township and the school agreed to pay any legal costs for the transaction. The township notes that having the property all in one community simplifies regulations and planning for any future uses.
