George SL-RP

Spring Lake's Kaden George attempts a jump shot over a Reeths-Puffer defender in Friday's loss. 

SPRING LAKE TWP. — Reeths-Puffer head coach Lance Johnson was at one point a player and assistant coach under Spring Lake head coach Bill Core. On Friday night, Johnson returned to coach against his former school and his team took home a 62-54 win over Spring Lake.

“It’s really special to have Lance come home. It’s special to play Lance now for three or four years in a row,” Spring Lake head coach Bill Core. “Puffer’s record is deceiving, they are 7-4 but their center was suspended for the start of the season. Since he’s back, they are 5-1. Their group has been together for three or four years. They play well together, it’s almost like a college team that’s stayed together.”
