A "Let's go DL" chant was echoing through Kent Freeman Arena after Tuesday's thrilling overtime Section 6-1A quarterfinal game between the No. 5 Willmar Cardinals and No. 4 Detroit Lakes Lakers.


Unfortunately for the Lakers, it was a goodbye and support chant from the DLHS student body, instead of a victory salute.

A one-timer by Willmar junior forward Grant Schow just 14 seconds into overtime, ended DL's season and playoff run before it even started.
