The Lakers scored on their first five possessions and improved to 3-2 in the Dunn-St. Croix conference, 4-2 overall, when they rolled over the Colfax Vikings 44-8 Friday night on the home field. The win Friday night, as well as all this season’s win, was significant in the fact it was Head Coach Doug Kahl’s final Homecoming win as coach of the Turtle Lake high school football team. Coach Kahl will be retiring from the sideline at season’s end.
The tone was set early. The Vikings received the opening kickoff and after gaining five yards on three downs were fourth and five from the 49 when the Laker defense stepped up and created a fourth down incompletion, giving the ball to the offense in Viking territory.
