The Lakers scored their eighth goal with eight minutes remaining in the first half, and the game was halted at halftime because of the mercy rule.

Riley Kammeraad scored three times and K.J. Sanchez added a pair of goals for the Lakers, who are now 9-0 on the year.

Adam Clauss, Austin Gabris and Tanner Debien also scored for Spring Lake, which is home against North Muskegon tonight.

“We jumped on them early, scoring twice in the first five minutes,” said Lakers’ coach Jeremy Thelen. “It was good to get a good Saturday game in, jump on them, send a little bit of a message to the Grand Rapids area.”

The Lakers play at Tri-County on Tuesday, then host Comstock Park on Thursday.

Junior Varsity: Spring Lake beat Forest Hills Northern, 3-1. Josh Roberge scored once and played well for the Lakers.
