HUDSONVILLE HIGH SCHOOL: 2
The Lakers opened the 2019 season on the road at Hudsonville. On a cold snowy, rainy evening this senior laden team simply refused to let the weather or early season jitters alter their effort on the field and out-worked and out-hustled the host Eagles.
The Lakers emerged with a 4-2 victory. Sophomore Jake Vinkemulder scored the Lakers first goal of the season to knot the game at 1. With just over a minute left in the first quarter senior Colby Brown put the Lakers ahead for good. Spring Lake scored two goals in the 3rd quarter, one by senior Sean Carrns and the other by freshman Danton Molotky. Dominik Molotky had two assists on the evening and Brown had one assist.
The defensive unit, led by Noah Verlinde, Keegan O'Donnell and Chase DeVries never allowed the Eagles to get settled on offense, only allowing 15 shots on goal. A lot of the defense's success came in the riding game creating a lot of turnovers in the transition game. In the cage, Jaden Lewis and Gavin Cunningham each played great, giving up one goal a piece.
The Lakers open up their O-K conference schedule with their next game on Thursday, April 11th at home.
