Rochester Lourdes rallied from a goal down in the third period to force overtime, then kept grinding until three underclassmen connected on the game-winning goal.

With time winding down, Jack Roe and Peyton Loeslie set up teammate Aidan Ritter for the game winner — his eighth goal of the season and second point of the game — to lift Lourdes to a 3-2 non-conference boys hockey victory against Breck at Graham Arena I on Saturday night.

Lourdes won for the fourth time in five games and improved to 12-5-0 overall.

Loeslie had a hand in all three Lourdes goals and Xander Carter-Kleven had another outstanding performance in goal for the Eagles. The sophomore netminder stopped 36 of the 38 shots he faced to improve to 11-5-0 as a starter this season, lower his goals-against average to 2.04 and up his save percentage to .929.

After a scoreless first period, the Eagles got on the board first.


Loeslie scored 1:44 into the second period, with assists from Ritter and Jackson Heim.

Breck’s Will Potter scored midway through the second to make it a 1-1 game after two.

The Mustangs (4-10-0) took their only lead 2:29 into the third on a Nate Miller power-play goal. But Lourdes senior leader and defenseman Charlie Kielty answered 3:19 later with his 10th goal of the season — assisted by Loeslie — to tie the score 2-2.

Breck goalie Jack Thomson matched Carter-Kleven’s performance, making 45 saves in the loss.

Lourdes is scheduled to play for the third time in four days on Monday, at 5 p.m. at Minnehaha Academy.
