High School Sports – Saturday’s Results: 


Lake Country Lutheran 21, St. Mary’s Springs 14

–The Lightning built a 21-0 lead, then held on as St. Mary’s Springs mounted a fourth quarter rally, but fell short in the season opener at Fruth Field Saturday night. LCL’s Zander Mueller returned the opening kickoff 85 yards for a score, and the Lightning capitalized on two of the Ledgers’ three turnovers in the game – including a fumble on the opening kickoff of the second half, which LCL returned for a touchdown. Cade Sabel got Springs on the board with 7:20 left to play in the game – then an interception set up a short field – and led to a one yard run from Marcus Orlandoni. Lake Country Lutheran then was able to run out all but a few seconds of the fourth quarter clock, and kept Springs from getting anywhere close to tying the game on their final plays of the game. The loss snaps the Ledgers’ 29-game win streak, and is their first loss in a season opener since 2007.
