Spring Lake started out flat against visiting Whitehall on Saturday at Spring Lake High School and the Lakers could never recover, falling to the Vikings by a 54-51 score.

“We’re not here to make excuses but Friday night took a lot out of us, physically, emotionally and mentally,” said Spring Lake coach Bill Core. “We hadn’t focused a lot on Whitehall except for our morning shoot-around on Saturday. We put all of our eggs into the Ludington basket.”

Junior forward Austin Johnson led the Lakers with 17 points and he also grabbed eight rebounds.
