A first-half scoring onslaught by Detroit Lakes' Josh Stalberger and the Lakers was more than enough to put the clamps on visiting Fergus Falls in a 66-34 victory Saturday.


Stalberger made a killing in the paint, scoring 16 of his 18 points in the first half, as the Lakers built a 47-24 halftime lead.

DL's defense applied plenty of pressure the entire game, limiting the Otters to 10 points in the second half alone.
