The Cougars are headed to state for the first time in over a decade!
On Wednesday night in Rochester, the 2nd-seeded Mankato East/Loyola boys hockey team battled the 5th-seeded Rochester Lourdes Eagles in the Section 1A title game.
Lourdes took the 1-0 lead to start the game, but it was all Cougars from there.
Mankato East/Loyola rolled to the 6-1 win over the Eagles for the Section 1A title.
The Cougars will take the ice at the Xcel Energy Center next Wednesday in the MSHSL class A state quarterfinals.
We'll have more from the Cougars later this week on KEYC News 12.
