Spring Lake opened up with a 12-0 start, and went into the second quarter up 27-14.
The Lakers only mustered six more points going into the half though, and the Vikings cut Spring Lake’s lead to six.
“For as hot as we were in the first quarter we were as cold in the second,” said coach Bill Core.
The Lakers got back on track in the third quarter, outscoring Tri-County 24-4 to pull away.
Nick Goeglein led Spring Lake with 15 points and 13 rebounds. Nathan Batts and Keegan George got the job done both scoring and passing. Batts dished out six assists to go with nine points, while George had four assists with his 11. Kyle Zietlow added 12 points and four steals.
Spring Lake’s victory on Friday, coupled with Fremont’s 72-71 loss to Ludington in overtime, put the Lakers in a very good position to win the Lakes Eight crown. Spring Lake is now up two games, with three left to play in conference.
