Caledonia’s Kyle Bechtel caught a 30-yard touchdown pass midway through the third quarter to give the Warriors the only points they’d need.

But on the ensuing Lourdes possession, just 27 seconds after Bechtel’s touchdown, Caledonia’s Christopher Pieper intercepted an Eagles pass and returned it for a touchdown and a 15-0 lead.

Lourdes hosts Zumbrota-Mazeppa at 7 p.m. next Friday, in the Eagles’ final home game of the regular season.

Caledonia is back in action Friday at home against Triton.
