An aggressive man-to-man trap defense, employed by the visiting Thief River Falls girls' basketball team, stifled Detroit Lakes in a 45-27 defeat of the Lakers Thursday evening inside Ralph Anderson Gym.


The Prowlers (2-0) were able to limit DL's shots, while building an 11-point lead midway through the second half to pull the Lakers out of their normal game strategy.

DL trailed only 19-14 at halftime.
