The final stretch of the regular season is upon the Detroit Lakes girls’ hockey team, as they were kept busy with the No. 3 ranked East Grand Forks Saturday.

DL goalie Veronica Badurek didn’t receive much of a break after seeing 43 shots come her way, saving 38 of them in a 5-0 loss to the Green Wave (21-1-1).

EGF’s Alexa Mack had two goals in the game, including the first one in the opening period. Green Wave leading scorer Haley Mack (67 points) put EGF up 3-0 on a power play score, with Tiffany Hanson and Karly Nelson each scoring in the three-goal second.

DL managed 16 shots on net in the loss.

Alexa Mack notched her second goal in the third period to cap the scoring.

The Lakers faced top-ranked Thief River Falls (21-1-1) Tuesday (results will be in Sunday’s paper) and will close out at home Saturday against Sartell (15-4-3) starting at 3:30 p.m.
