Sidney Drew gave Alexandria a two-goal cushion in the first half but the Laker duo of Anna Payne and Lauren Tschider responded to score three goals and give Detroit Lakes a 2-0 start to the season after a 3-2 comeback victory Saturday in Alexandria.

Drew's first goal came 14 minutes into the first half off a deflection.

Drew's scored again late in the half, when Camille Hegstad received a pass near the left side of the goal and passed the ball back to the middle with the assist.

Payne got the Lakers on the board three minutes into the second half beating a challenge from the Cards’ keeper in the penalty area.

Tschider tied the game with a left-footed drive from 25-yards out in the mid-field outside the penalty box arc.

Tschider added the game-winner with eight minutes to play to complete the comeback.

Payne and Tschider have combined for eight of DL’s nine goals this season. Tschider leads the team with five tallies.

The Cardinals fall to 0-2 and DL looks for a third victory in as many games Tuesday, Aug. 29 at 5 p.m. against Crookston (0-1).
