Jordan Fields scored a late third-period goal to lift the Detroit Lakes boys hockey team over Thief River Falls on Thursday night at the Kent Freeman Arena.

Fields put the Lakers ahead for good with 4:02 left in regulation to give the Lakers (10-4) a 2-1 lead. After Braydin Lund put the Prowlers (6-8) up 1-0 late in the second period, Detroit Lakes scored two unanswered goals. Jack Turner tied the game at 1-1 with his second career goal before the second intermission.

Elijah Blow made 15 saves in goal for the Lakers to earn his fifth win of the season. He has five wins on the season and holds a 2.32 goals-against average with a .902 save percentage.

The Lakers now have a 5-2 section record, with an overtime loss against East Grand Forks and a 3-0 defeat against Warroad. Detroit Lakes most likely will not get the No. 1 seed but is in contention for the second seed in the 8A playoffs.
