Progress was made throughout the 2012 Detroit Lakes boys' soccer season, as the young squad matured through each game, which brought adversity, along with improvement.


The Lakers were hit with an untimely injury bug in the Section 8-1A playoffs, after losing three starters after their first-round victory over Crookston.

The short-handed DL squad limped into Hillcrest, falling 3-0 to the talented Comets team, thus finishing the season with a 7-10 record.
