The Spring Lake boys basketball team started the season with a win under its belt on Tuesday as they struck down the Whitehall Vikings, 58-36.

The Lakers opened with cold shooting and low energy, trailing 16-12 midway through the second quarter. But they kicked themselves into gear and went on an 11-0 run to snatch a 23-16 lead by halftime.

The Lakers took that momentum and set the cruise control, outscoring the Vikings 35-20 over the second half.

Kaden George led in scoring, posting 15 points while Eli Morrison scored 13.

Playing all over the court for the Lakers was Jackson Core with eight points, nine rebounds, four assists and three steals.

Spring Lake starts the season 1-0 and don’t compete again until Friday December 17th at home against the Grand Haven Buccaneers.
