The Lakers got things started on a goal by Alec Strahl early in the first half. Riley Kammeraad added a first-half goal for Spring Lake, then Kyle Kendall scored shortly after halftime. Michael Zietlow scored the Lakers’ final goal, while Adam Clauss provided three assists.
“On that turf, the ball bounces all over the place, and we challenged the ball hard all night,” Thelen said. “Guys like Adam Roberge chasing balls down, Ben Keller doing the grunt work, K.J. Sanchez chasing loose balls.
“It’s nice to roll in our last game before the holiday weekend,” Thelen added. “We’ve played well. We’ve set the bar high. Now we get to wind down for a few days, then come back ready for conference.”
