“We are playing the best soccer of the season at the perfect time,” Fruitport coach Greg Kobylak said. “It is satisfying to be peaking at the end of the year and ready to make a run in the MHSAA tournament.”

Fruitport (11-7-2 overall) led 1-0 lead at halftime on a goal by Dalton Mullennix after a scramble in the box.

The Warriors (10-7-1) tied the game early in the second half on a header from Chaise Schuiteman off an assist by Ben Mast.

But seconds later, Taylor McLaughlin scored off a corner kick to give the Trojans back the momentum and a 2-1 lead.

LAKERS TIE FINALE

No. 1-ranked Spring Lake saw its hopes of a perfect season dashed in a game at No. 9 Holland on Thursday.

The host Dutch scored three consecutive goals and held on for a 3-3 tie against the visiting Lakers.

“Holland is probably the best team we’ve played this year,” said Lakers’ coach Jeremy Thelen, whose team is now 19-0-1. “It was their senior night, so they played with some passion.”

Still, the Lakers raced to a 2-0 lead on goals by Kaleb Winter and Riley Kammeraad just 6 minutes into the game.

Holland responded, tying the game at 2-2 before halftime and taking a 3-2 lead early in the second half.
