Girls Soccer - Sartell escapes with 1-0 victory over Lakers

Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.

Although the Sartell girls' soccer team played some excellent defense en route to their Section 8-1A semifinal win against visiting Detroit Lakes, an own-goal was the decisive tally in the Sabres' 1-0 victory Tuesday.


The Lakers held possession of the ball for the majority of the two halves, but it was a Sartell shot, which deflected off a DL defender at the 31st minute of the first half, which proved to be the game winner.
