The timing could not have been better for Lakeville South's Henry Welsch to have his best game of the year. The Cougars were facing rival Lakeville North in the Class 2A Section 6 boys' hockey championship Thursday night at the Burnsville Ice Center with a trip to the state tournament at stake.
Welsch turned away 46 shots to seal a Cougars' 4-0 victory, but for the senior goaltender it was business as usual.
