Late comeback lifts Lakers over Duluth East

Email News Alerts

For the first 47:26 of Wednesday's football game, Duluth East led the entire way over the visiting Detroit Lakes Lakers.

But it was those last 34 seconds which mattered to the Lakers most, as they clung onto a 21-20 victory, which was preserved after a missed 45-yard field goal by the Greyhound's Henry Roningen.


DL gained the No. 6 seed in the Section 8-4A playoffs, where they will travel to No. 3 Sauk Rapids-Rice (6-2) Tuesday for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
