Both Spring Lake and Fruitport scored easy wins in their opening Lakes Eight Conference soccer contests of the season on Tuesday.
The Lakers, who sit at No. 2 in the inaugural Division 2 state rankings, took on Orchard View and their star forward Zack Sutton and came away with a 4-0 victory.
"I'm pretty proud of what we've done defensively, especially with Sutton getting such high praise early in the season,' said Lakers' coach Jeremy Thelen, whose team is now 5-0. "We wanted to set the tone early in the conference season.'
