Lakers saddle Blue Devils with 5-2 loss

The Detroit Lakes Lakers scored three times in the second period Tuesday en route to claiming a 5-2 Mid-State Conference hockey victory over the Blue Devils at the Wadena Hockey Arena.

Emily Payne and Randa Larsen both scored twice for the Lakers.

The Lakers were leading 2-0 when Katelyn Peters put Long Prairie-Grey Eagle/Wadena-Deer Creek on the board at 8:42 in the second period. Ashlee Helseth and Kylee Damm earned assists on the goal. The Lakers jumped ahead 5-1 before Helseth scored her club's final goal at the 2:32 mark of the third period. Peters was credited with the assist.

"We matched their speed well and played a good game, with the exception of the second period," Blue Devils Head Coach George Behl said.

The Blue Devils will host a noon contest Saturday with Marshall in Long Prairie. They host Morris-Benson Tuesday on the Long Prairie ice and face Park Rapids in Wadena on Thursday at 7 p.m.
