Lakers outscore Lightning 5-1


DETROIT LAKES — Hunter Leslie scored the only goal in the Northern Lakes Lightning’s 5-1 loss to the Detroit Lakes Lakers in a key Mid-State Conference matchup Saturday.

The Lightning have a chance to win the conference title if they can beat Prairie Center at Long Prairie on Tuesday and Park Rapids defeats the Lakers the same night. The Lightning could also finish as low as fourth.
