Monticello at Rogers
7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 1

Rogers and Monticello meet in a Mississippi 8 Conference showdown between two of the top teams in the conference.

The Royals (10-1-1) lead the conference with a 5-0 mark while the Magic (7-2-1) come into the game at 4-1 in league play.

Rogers has outscored opponents 58-13 this season behind a trio of players who have double-digit goal totals. Trevor Klink leads the team with 17 goals and 13 assists, while Logan Olkon (13 G, 11 A) and Matt Carik (12 G, 8 A) are potent offensive weapons.

Monticello has lost to St. Cloud Tech (5-0), Chisago Lakes Area (4-2) and St. Cloud Apollo (3-0).

Taylor Modaff leads the Magic with six goals and eight assists while three others have five goals.

Rogers won last year’s meeting 1-0.
