Lakers start season with three victories


It was a cold night Wednesday as the Maple Lake Lakers opened the season against the defending Class C State Champion Sartell Muskies.  
Originally scheduled for Laker stadium, the game was played in Sartell due to field conditions.  
The Lakers scored early and often, with almost every Laker batter getting a hit and a run.  
Dusty Decker stole the show when he hit the first homerun of the year. 
 Jeremy Schmidt started on the mound and pitched four innings, giving up one earned run and Ben Jungers finished the last five innings for the win.
