Spring Lake broke a scoreless tie with a goal with 15 minutes left in the second half and went on to beat Western Michigan Christian 2-0 on Monday in a nonconference match.

Morgan Carey and Mariada Gezon scored goals for the Lakers and Saebryn Peel added an assist.

“Spring Lake is a great team. They play well together and they attack as a team, WMC coach David Hulings said “We had everything we could to keep the game tied 0-0 with only 15 minutes left in the game. We tried to push forward at the end and gave up another goal, but I was very pleased about how our defenders and keeper played tonight.”

WMC (5-1, 3-0) goalie Lindsey Johnson made 18 saves.

Spring Lake outshot the Warriors 20-6.

“They kept a very good attacking team out of the net for most of the game,” said Hulings. “They extremely outshot us and attacked us. Even though most of their shots were from long distances we still had a chance at the end to put one in the net ourselves.”
