A four-run inning in the Detroit Lakes Softball Invitational Saturday salvaged one win for the Lakers, who finished fourth in the eight-team tournament.


The Lakers went 1-2 on the day, which was highlighted by a 4-2 victory over Lake Park-Audubon in the opening round. They then suffered losses to West Fargo 11-1 and Moorhead in the bronze game, 18-4.

There was one facet of DL's game which was not present -- offense -- as the team produced only 15 hits on the day.
