The result was an impressive 4-1 win ovr the Lakers, who are now 3-0 on the season.
“We had a lot of chances, but we couldn’t finish in the first half,” said Lakers’ coach Jeremy Thelen.
Spring Lake finally capitalized just before halftime when Riley Kammeraad hit a shot that trickled past the Maroons’ keeper for the goal. Kaleb Winter got the assist on the play.
“It was 1-0 at halftime, and I told them at halftime, ‘C’mon boys, we’ve got to step up. We’re dominating play,” Thelen said.
His message was well received.
The Lakers made it 2-0 just 2 minutes into the second half when Adam Clauss scored on a header off a long throw-in from Austin Gabris.
