Albert Lea 1, Lourdes 0

ALBERT LEA — Spencer VanBeek scored 10 minutes into a season-opening boys hockey game between Rochester Lourdes and Albert Lea.

The rest of the night belonged to the goaltenders.

VanBeek’s goal 10:02 into the non-conference game at Albert Lea City Arena was the only shot to get past Lourdes’ standout junior goalie Xander Carter-Kleven. On the other end of the ice, Albert Lea’s talented senior Dakota Jahnke was perfect.

Carter-Kleven made 33 saves, while Jahnke made 20 in a battle of two teams that met in the Section 1A semifinals last season.

Carter-Kleven was excellent, holding Lourdes in the game by making 26 of his 33 saves over the final two periods.


Lourdes (0-1-0) is back in action Friday against another top Section 1A team, Northfield, at 7 p.m. at Graham Arena.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
