Lakers Football Advances To Section Championship With Win Over Rocori Click to Enlarge

It was a wet, sloppy and muddy night at Mollberg Field but the home crowd showed up strong to see the Detroit Lakes Lakers defeat the Rocori Spartans 14-0 in the second round of the section playoffs to advance to their first Section Championship Game since 2014.

All the scoring happened in the first quarter. Reed Mace, on a 4th and 2 play, scored a 33 yard touchdown to give the Lakers a 7-0 lead. Max Gunderson scored on a one yard run to push the score to 14-0.

Isaiah Thompson led the Lakers in rushing with 50 yards on 15 carries. The Lakers had 131 yards of offense...all on the ground.

Next up for the Lakers: the Willmar Cardinals with a trip to the State Tournament on the line. That game will be played in Alexandria at 7 o'clock.
