The Spring Lake football team may have had a rough season overall, but it closed out the campaign on an exciting note against Comstock Park on Friday.
The Lakers struck first on an 80-yard scoring run by quarterback Cameron Ball.
On the next Spring Lake drive, Ball found Jack Stemptky for a 30-yard touchdown pass to extend the lead to 13-0.
The Panthers responded, scoring two touchdowns before the half to go up 14-13 at the break.
Ball punched in another score and Isaiah Pierce caught the two-point conversion to give the Lakers a 21-14 lead.
Spring Lake increased its lead to 27-14 on a 56-yard pass from Ball to Pierce.
After a Comstock Park touchdown, Pierce found the end zone again, this time on the ground, to make it 33-21 with four minutes remaining.
Comstock Park scored on a 90-yard pass play with less than a minute left to cut the Laker lead to 33-28.
The Panthers then recovered an onside kick to get one last chance at a win. They heaved a last ditch pass to the end zone, but the throw was picked off by Pierce to end the game.
The Lakers finished the season with a 2-7 record.
