ROCHESTER —Senior Ryan Dwyer scored three goals — including short-handed and power-play goals in the third — and the Faribault High School boys hockey team defeated Rochester John Marshall 4-2 on the road Tuesday.
The Falcons (10-4-0) preyed on JM’s (5-8-0, 2-1) special teams Tuesday, creating separation from the Rockets with Dwyer’s shorthanded score just 15 seconds into the period and icing it with his strike on the man-advantage.
“It’s pretty important that we captialze in special teams,” coach Brad Ryan said. “To get a goal there and go up by two, that was crucial.”
Senior George Richie scored the game’s first goal for the Falcons. Goalie Wyatt Andreas finished the game with 19 saves to ink the win.
