The Eagles boys hockey team had a busy week with a trip to Le Sueur on Friday, Feb. 9, to take on the Minnesota River Bulldogs; hosting the Trojans of Worthington on Monday and the Windom Eagles on Tuesday night.
The Eagles took a loss in Le Sueur, with the Bulldogs scoring three goals in the first period alone. Josh Seidl scored the only goal for the Eagles, in the second period.
When the Trojans showed up in New Ulm Monday night, they were in for an absolute battle.
In total, the Eagles put 59 shots on goal, keeping Worthington’s defense exhausted. The Trojans had nine chances to score a goal. Each time they fired, Jack Raymond was right there to stop the attempt.
Kyle Tauer put the Eagles on the board in the first period. He went on to score all three of his attempts in the game—with one goal in each period.
In the second period, it was Sam Berg who hit the net, off a pass from Nick Banal. Tauer got his second goal and Jack Fairbairn hooked one in the final minutes of the period.
The Trojans continued to not have an answer for the Eagles in the third period. Tauer got his hat trick and Bailey Hillesheim and Glavine Schugel each scored goals before the clock ran out, giving the Eagles a shutout win.
