Rochester Lourdes at Austin
10 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 26

Rochester Lourdes had questions about its defense entering the season after graduating its entire backline. But the Eagles have proven defensively sound, allowing just seven goals this season.

Rochester Lourdes (5-1-2, 2-0-1) shut out its first three opponents and its only loss was to No. 4-1A Breck in a 2-1 game.

Dany Berbari has paced the Eagles offense with 11 goals while Tiernan Talbot has six and Charlie Rolfs has five.

Austin made its way to the Class 1A, Section 1 championship last season for the second time in three years. The Packers won a section title in 2009 against Rochester Lourdes and also met the Eagles in the 2011 and 2012 section championships.

The Packers (4-2-2, 2-2-1) haven’t scored much since an 11-0 rout of Fairmont Area in the season opener. Austin has five goals in its past seven games, but has gone 3-2-2 in that time. Goalkeeper Chris Kirchgatter has made a difference for the Packers with three shutouts.
