Boys Hockey: DL wins one, loses one this weekend
Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

A shutout of visiting Prairie Centre by the Detroit Lakes boys’ hockey team was followed up by an unspectacular 4-1 loss to Fargo Davies Saturday, putting the Lakers at 10-7-1 on the season.

Laker sophomore back-up goalie Austin Fritz recorded his first varsity career shutout with a 5-0 win over Prairie Centre Friday inside Kent Freeman Arena, as forward Ryan DeConcini struck for a hat trick.

Line mate Jon Richards also found the back of the net, along with two assists, while Jonathan Hallisey added a goal and assist.

Fritz snuffed out 32 Prairie Centre shots en route to his third win of the season.

Fargo Davies’ Alex Groth scored a hat trick of his own Saturday, as his team built an early 3-0 lead and maintained throughout, outshooting DL by a 35-24 margin.

Laker Michael Herr-mann broke DL’s goose egg in the second on a windup shot from the face-off circle to trim the deficit to 3-1.

Zach Boor added Fargo Davies’ fourth goal.

The Lakers will host Wadena-Deer Creek (4-15-1) Friday and travel to Greenway-Coleraine (3-13-3) Saturday for a 7:15 p.m. start.
