Lakers overwhelmed by No. 7 Duluth East

Email News Alerts

It's a good time to move on to the playoffs for the Detroit Lakes football team, and forget the regular season finale.

The No. 7 Class 4A-ranked Duluth East Greyhounds clinched the North Country Conference for the first time since 2005 with a crushing 51-8 defeat of the Lakers Wednesday on Mollberg Field.


It's a loss which can be forgotten, since the Lakers only have five short days to prepare for the Section 8-4A playoffs, which start Tuesday at home.
