A major goal was reached for the Detroit Lakes boys’ soccer team, as they earned the No. 2 seed in the North half of the Section 8-1A playoffs, while going 7-7-1 on the season.

The Lakers defeated the Otters in the season opener 5-0.

“This is what we wanted all year, to host a couple of playoff games,” said DL head coach Justin Wegleitner.
