An overtime goal with time ticking away by Wadena-Deer Creek's Dylan Phillips sunk Detroit Lakes in boys' hockey action Thursday night.


The Mid-State Conference win for the Wolverines came despite being outshot 38-22 and 7-2 in the overtime period.

The loss spoils the Lakers' undefeated conference record, as they fall to 4-1-1 and second place in the conference, behind Park Rapids' 6-1-0 mark.

The Lakers (7-11-1) had to dig out of a 2-0 deficit, but they did it in fashion by scoring three unanswered goals from Ryan Deconcini, Kyle Herrmann and Taylor Johnson.

But W-DC went on a two-goal streak in the third, until DL's Jona-than Hallisey tied the game at 4-4 to force the extra period.

Phillips' unassisted goal in overtime came 7:59 into the period.

Assists were dished out by Michael Herrmann (two), Austin Rusness, Sam Velde, Connor Collins, Casey Paskey and Joe Solberg for the Lakers.

Goals by W-DC went to Mitchell Swanson, Mike Paavola, Phillips and Christian Berg with two.

The Wolverines improved to 11-8 on the season with the victory.

The Lakers will host Bagley/Fosston (7-11) Tuesday, for a 7:30 p.m. start.
