The Detroit Lakes boys' and girls' soccer teams will each begin the Section 8-1A playoffs at home.

There will be a double dose of playoff soccer Tuesday, as the North No. 2 seeded Laker girls (7-8-3) will host No. 7 Walker/Hackensack-Akeley (1-9-0) and the No. 3 DL boys' team (7-8-1) will take on No. 6 Crookston (3-12-1).

If the Laker boys win, they will face either No. Bemidji (12-4-1) or No. 7 W/H-A (0-10-0) Thursday at the high seed.

For the Laker girls, a victory will ensure another home game Thursday against the winner of No. 3 Bemidji (7-10-1) and No. 6 Hillcrest (2-11-0).
