Spring Grove 33, Houston 16

SPRING GROVE -- Spring Grove had to fight back to win this one as it trailed 16-14 at intermission.

Hunter Holland came up with a big play then to start the second half, taking the opening kickoff and sprinting in for a touchdown. Spring Grove went up 21-16 then and never looked back.

The Lions did a much better job against run-heavy Houston in the second half. A switch of Tristan Hammel from defensive end to nose guard after intermission helped plug things up for the Spring Grove defense.

Tysen Grinde had a pair of touchdown catches for the Lions, one from 20 yards, the other from 15.
