Boys Hockey | John Marshall 6, Dodge County 3

KASSON — Rochester John Marshall fell behind early, but battled back and scored four consecutive goals en route to a 6-3 boys hockey victory against Dodge County at Four Seasons Arena on Thursday.

The score was tied 2-2 after the first period, but Alex Lovett and Matt Broman scored in the second period for a 4-2 Rockets lead. Midway through the third, Zack Johnson and Hunter Heightland scored  power play goals to seal the victory for JM.

Tanner Keller added a late power-play goal for Dodge County to cap the scoring.

"The guys played well; we won a lot of little battles," JM co-coach Jared Skovbroten said. "We played well as a team. Every individual player did their job well."

Dillon Stevens put Dodge County (12-7-0 overall) up 1-0 just 1:39 into the game. Johnson and Gavin Sandwick each responded for a 2-1 JM lead, but Drew Wohlfiel scored at 13:18 of the period to tie the score at 2-2.


Eric Mackey added three assists for JM and Ryan Yetzer had two. Sandwick, Zack Johnson, AJ Johnson and Zach Ewing each had one assist.

Chad Mundy had two assists for the Wildcats, while Keller, Stevens and Wohlfield had one each.

Each goalie — JM's Bryan King and Dodge County's Dustin Stevens — had 15 saves.

JM (11-9-0) has won eight of its past 11 games. Skovbroten said the Rockets have had more focus since a 2-1 loss to Rochester Mayo on Jan. 15.

"We tried to reset our mindset and make that loss a turning point," he said. "We're playing against some good teams and playing solid hockey."

JM plays at St. Paul Highland Park at 6 p.m. Saturday. Dodge County plays at Waseca at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
