Email News Alerts

Although it's weird to say, it's been awhile since the Detroit Lakes football team has been one step away from the state playoffs.

But that's exactly where the Lakers will be come Thursday at 8 p.m. inside the Fargodome, as the Class 4A No. 3 ranked DL will face defending state champion Rocori (6-3) in the Section 8-4A championship.


Not since 2007 have the Lakers played in the section title game, and this is exactly where they want to be in 2012.
