ST. CLOUD - The odds were stacked against the Detroit Lakes girls’ hockey team to making their first-ever Class 1A state appearance, as they entered the Section 6 championship game Friday night in St. Cloud.
After all, the Lakers entered the title game with a losing record at 11-15 and they were facing the seasoned and top-seeded Alexandria Cardinals, who make a trip to the section championship game annually.
Excuse the Lakers if they didn’t get that memo.
Detroit Lakes drew No. 2 seeded Warroad in the Class 1A state playoffs and will play the Warriors Wednesday at 11 a.m. inside the Xcel Energy Center.
