Tanner Lane ran right through the Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines Tuesday night in helping Detroit Lakes tack up a 5-1 Mid-State Conference victory.

Chad Maristuen chalked up the game's second goal at 9:25 with help from Lane and Alex Deconcini. Lane made a power play pay off at 11:22 with assists from Alex Mason and Joe Hanson.
