LAKERS BLANKED BY MAROONS
Holland Christian scored a goal in each half, both off corner kicks, to score a 2-0 win over Spring Lake.
“We defended lot, and the wind was really a factor,” Lakers’ coach Jeremy Thelen said. “We had to defend with an extra player in the first half because of the wind. It opened up a bit in the second half, but we were really chasing. They’re big, physical. They’re ranked (No. 8) in the state.”
Thelen gave credit to Lakers’ goalie Molly Cooke and defenders Leeann Latsch, Kendall Meyers, Hailey Pellegrom and Katie Albright with playing well against a dangerous Maroons’ attack.
Junior Varsity: Makayla Boyink scored the game’s lone goal, giving Spring Lake a 1-0 win.
