Eagles soar to 2 wins

The Becker/Big Lake hockey team made their time on the road well worth it by winning two out of three. The team defeated Prairie Centre and Moose Lake last week before losing to River Lakes on Monday. 

The Eagles travelled to Sauk Centre last Thursday where they scored a dominant 6-3 victory over Prairie Centre. 

Five different skaters had multiple points in the win. The team got out to a 4-0 lead behind goals from four different players and led 6-1 late in the third.

Jase Tobako got the scoring started late in the first period, and Beckham Laska extended the lead to 2-0 just 16 seconds later. Tate Spilde and Brayden Graning scored the next two and each added another goal in the third.

 Tobako finished with a goal and an assist, Laksa added two assists to go with his goal, Samuel Rusin had three assists, Graning had two goals and two assists, and Spilde added an assist to his two goals. 

On Friday the team made the trek up to Moose Lake and came home with a 4-1 win. 

The Rebels scored first just a minute into the game, but the Eagle’s attack was relentless, finishing the game with 68 shots on goal. Tobako scored two goals, the first tying the game, and Grayson Kipka scored a power play goal in the second period to put the Eagles ahead for good. 

Trevor Briggs, Gavin Jacobson, Gunnar Hanson, Garrett Marotz, and Laska all had an assist. 

On Monday the Eagles lost 5-1 in Paynesville against the River Lakes Stars. 

The team struggled to generate many scoring chances on offense, with only 17 shots on goal for the game. But Graning made one count as he scored the team’s only goal off an assist from Tobako. 

Declan Weber made 49 saves in the loss. 

The team returns home this week with games Thursday and Saturday against Northern Edge and Bagley/Fosston.
