Laker Football - DL can pull away from EGF with a victory

Email News Alerts

The Heart O'Lakes Conference North race could quickly become a two-team race after Friday.

Class 4A No. 6 ranked Detroit Lakes (4-0) has a prime opportunity to put some separation between themselves and East Grand Forks (3-1) on Mollberg Field, after the Green Wave had a bump in the road with a 20-6 loss to Thief River Falls.


The Lakers, meanwhile, kept it on cruise control when they pummeled Staples-Motley 48-0, as DL's defense remained a hard unit to score on.
