Bulldogs host playoff game

The Minnesota River Bulldog Hockey Team received the No. 2 seed in section 1A hockey playoffs and will host the winner of No. 7 Austin and No. 10 La Crescent in Le Sueur on Thursday, Feb. 21 at 7 p.m.

The winner of Thursday’s game will take on either No. 3 Albert Lea or No. 6 Faribault on Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Rochester Recreation Center at 8 p.m.

The cooperative team between St. Peter, TCU, Cleveland and Le Sueur-Henderson high schools ended the season with a 17-4 overall record. The last game played was on February 15 in Luverne. The Bulldogs won with a score of 11-1.

“The boys came out fast and hard and took control early,” said coach Shea Roehrkasse.

Goals came from a multitude of players. In the first period scorers were Ken Ringler, Jade Reicks, Hunter Wilmes and Tyson Sowder. The second period saw Sowder and Wilmes scoring again with Jake Rimstad.

The third period saw goals by Danny McCabe, Seth Reicks, Wilmes and Rimstad.

“It was a great all-around team effort from start to finish,” Roehrkasse stated.

The game came after almost a two-week hiatus due to school closings and cancellations. The break helped the boys’ competing spirits, their coach stated.

“The cancellations had these guys chomping at the bit,” he stated. “We had a great forecheck and did a nice job defensively all game long.”
