Laker matmen hit flat spot at the wrong time

Email News Alerts

Much like an ineffective tire stranding one on a lonely Minnesota road in January, Saturday wasn't a good time for the Detroit Lakes wrestling team to go flat.


But that's what happened to the No. 6 Lakers in their Section 7-2A quarterfinal, resulting in a 37-20 loss to No. 3 Minnewaska Saturday in Little Falls.

The defeat effectively snaps DL's two-year consecutive stint in the Class 2A state team meet, and ends its team portion of the 2005-06 season.
