Balanced Eagles pick up first victory

NORTHFIELD — Rochester Lourdes made its offensive effort count on Tuesday.

Nine Eagles got on the scoresheet in a 7-3 boys hockey victory against Section 1A rival Northfield. Lourdes (1-2-0) scored on seven of its 19 shots.

"Offensively, we were good, defensively we weren't very good," Lourdes coach Josh Spaniol said. "We have to shore up our 'D' but we have some young guys back there who are still learning."

Tucker Chapman led the Eagles offense with two goals and two assists, while Montana Streit had a goal and two assists. Ryan Olney scored twice, Connor Fitzpatrick had two assists and Lars Anderson had a goal and an assist.

Jack Burkel made 21 saves in the victory. Spaniol said Burkel, forward Cody Cossette (one assist) and defenseman Mason Carstens all played strong games.


"Those three guys were consistent all night long," Spaniol said.

Lourdes plays host to New Prague at 7 p.m. Thursday at Graham Arena.
