Boys Hockey - Warroad's fast start downs DL
A five-goal first period was more than enough for the undefeated Warroad boys' hockey team, as they moved on to defeat the visiting Detroit Lakes team 10-2 Saturday.
Kobe Roth notched the first two goals for the Warriors in the first 3:45 of the game, as Warroad rolled from there, with tallies from Jared Bethune, Zach Johnston on a power play and Nick Jaycox.
Bethune found the net three more times, while Roth added another for his hat trick.
Warroad outshot the Lakers by a 34-20 margin, as DL goalie MacKenzie Steele had 24 saves and Warrior goaltender Justin King had 18.
Detroit Lakes climbed on the board with Taylor Johnson finding the back of the net on a Taylor Magnuson assist, while senior center Austin Rusness scored 12:47 into the second on an assist by Jonathan Hallisey.
The Lakers (1-3) will host Prairie Centre (0-3) Friday for a 7:30 p.m. start.
