Toros Score Season-High 10 Goals, Beat Loons


Cullen Hogan and Jack Campion both scored two goals and the Mason City Toros defeated the Minnesota Loons, 10-1, on Saturday night at the Mason City Arena.

The Toros scored four goals in the first period, added four more in the second and two more in the third to score their most goals in a single-game this season. Mason City also recorded a season-high 73 shots while limiting Minnesota to a season-best 14. Eight different Toros recorded multi-point games.

Sota Isogai opened the scoring with his fifth of the season and fourth in the last two days at the 5:30 mark but Minnesota tied the game up just over four-and-a-half minutes later with their lone goal of the night. Campion scored 39 seconds later to give Mason City the lead for good and then Hogan and Dillon Schmidt sent the Toros into the locker room ahead by three goals.

Shota Kaneko scored his first of the season 21 seconds into the second period before Anton Egle, Zach Giblin and Campion also scored in the period. Hogan struck again 8:35 into the third period and Blake Polifka scored a power play goal, the Toros’ fifth in the last two days, in the final minute.

Mason City is back in action on Friday when it welcomes the Granite City LumberJacks to town for two games. Puck drop both days next weekend is at 7:30 p.m. The Toros will be hosting postgame autographs on Friday, sponsored by Cornish Family Chiropractic, and kids can trick-or-treat during the first intermission of Saturday’s game. All fans 12-and-under dressed in their favorite Halloween costume will receive free admission to both games. Tickets are available at
