Toros Visit Loons For Second Time In Three Weeks


The Mason City Toros face the Minnesota Loons on the road for the second weekend of the last three this weekend at the Breezy Point Hockey Center.

Two weekends ago the Toros scored eight goals in each of their two wins against the Minnesota Loons. In four meetings with Minnesota the Toros have scored a combined 34 goals while allowing just seven.

The Toros are coming off a weekend split with the Willmar WarHawks. Collin Kerchoff recorded a hat trick and the WarHawks won on the road, 4-1, last Friday. Brendan Sloth scored 10 seconds into the game and six other players also found the back of the net as the Toros cruised to a 7-2 victory last Saturday.

The Toros carry a six-game road winning streak into this weekend’s action. They have picked up wins over Willmar, New Ulm and Minnesota during it and are outscoring opponents 42-12 during it. The Toros have only lost two road games this season and their last loss away from Mason City came on Oct. 9, a 5-2 loss to Rochester, whom the Toros travel to face on Dec. 10.

Both games can be seen on Hockey TV and fans can follow along on Toros social media for lines, updates after each period and much more. Follow the Mason City Toros on Twitter and Instagram and ‘like’ them on Facebook.
