Spring Lake and WMC played at a 0-0 standstill for much of their contest Monday night, but the Lakers’ offensive attack came through in the second half. Spring Lake found the back of the net twice after the break, to score a 2-0 road victory.

“That’s what we have to do,” said coach Jeremy Thelen. “We have to be patient. We can’t get too excited about the moment, because eventually we’re going to be in tough games where it’s 0-0 for long periods of time. We’re going to have to understand that nothing is going to come easy, we just have to play our game, and things will go our way.

“We’ve just got to believe in it, and be together. We’ve got to play for each other. I saw a lot more of that than I’ve seen in our last couple games.” 

Spring Lake controlled the ball for most of the game. The Lakers had 20 shots on goal to WMC’s six, but were unable to score in the first half.  

It was Morgan Carey who finally broke the cold streak for the Lakers.
