Touissant with the shutout, Johnson with the game winner

The Irish were looking for revenge against the Wildcats in the second matchup of the season between the teams after Eagan defeated Rosemount 3-1 in the Cats home opener. Despite the advantage of a raucous home crowd, the Irish would be disappointed again as they went scoreless against a tough fighting Eagan squad. 

The teams went scoreless for more than half the game until sophomore forward Keegan Johnson ripped one in the upper corner on a 2 on 1 rush. The Cats would take a 1-0 lead into the 3rd period. Late in the game, Nick Sherek put in an empty netter to seal the victory for Eagan.

Brandon Touissant had a shutout with 24 saves in a great showing in the nets.
