After defeating rival Fruitport 10-9 last week, the Spring Lake football team won another nail-biter on Friday, defeating Grant, 17-14.
“Obviously it’s not what would you would like,” coach Jerry Rabideau said. “But we’ve come out on the right side of them. It makes you pleased that way.”
This time it took overtime, as kicker Adam Ross booted a 32-yard walk-off field to give the Lakers a key Lakes Eight victory over Grant.
“We had a great defensive stand again tonight, and our defense continued to play well,” Rabideau said. “When the ball was turned over to us. I knew that we could either score or have Adam to kick the ball.”
The two teams traded scores throughout regulation.
Spring Lake struck first, on a 70-yard pass from Mark Williamson to Chase Slagboom.
The connection lead to Spring Lake’s first score, but the two players were also tied to Grant’s two scores, as a Slagboom fumble and Williamson interception came at what Rabideau called “inopportune times.”
