Spring Lake continued its undefeated start to the season with a 3-0 victory over Ludington on Thursday.
Riley Kammeraad and K.J. Sanchez scored first-half goals for the Lakers, who are now 7-0 overall and 3-0 in Lakes Eight action. Tyler Cole also scored in the second half.


Western Michigan Christian came back from two goals down but had to settle for a 3-3 tie at Covenant Christian Thursday in a game called after the first overtime due to darkness.
