Less than a month ago, Rochester Century belted rival Rochester John Marshall by six goals in a consolation round game of the Kiwanis Festival.

Tuesday night — during the rivals’ second meeting of the season — John Marshall jumped out to a quick lead and hung onto that advantage through the first period.

Then Century decided to take over.

Trailing by a goal after 17 minutes, the Panthers showed their depth, scoring the next four goals to pull away from the Rockets for a 7-4 Big Nine Conference boys hockey victory at the Rochester Recreation Center.

Tuesday’s game marked the 54th time the intra-city rivals have met. Century now leads the all-time series decisively 37-15-2. The Panthers have defeated the Rockets 12 in consecutive matchups dating back to the 2016-17 season.

Tuesday was no different, but the Panthers did have to come from behind, then hold off a third-period push by the Rockets.

JM (3-4-0 Big Nine, 5-10-0 overall) led 2-1 after one as Mason Decker and Jayden Veney sandwiched goals around one by Century’s Matt Haun.

Decker and Haun both had big nights for their respective teams. Decker had a hand in all four JM goals, scoring one and assisting on three. Haun, a tough senior defenseman, scored twice and assisted on two others.

TJ Gibson, Jack Ottman and Owen Merges scored for Century (5-3-0, 7-7-0) in the second to give the Panthers a 4-2 lead after two.

Ottman and JM’s Aiden Kang traded goals in the third, but the Panthers sealed the win with goals by Haun and Aidan Swee in the final five minutes. Jake Schmidt scored a late power-play goal to pull JM within three, but that was as close as the Rockets could get.

Branigan Stalder made 19 saves in the win, while Cody Vlasaty stopped 43 shots for the Rockets.

Century is scheduled to host Austin at 7 p.m. Thursday at Graham Arena IV, while John Marshall will play at Winona at 7:15 p.m. Thursday.
