The Red Wing boys hockey team fell Friday 4-1 to Totino-Grace in Fridley.
Belisle called the game the team’s most complete performance as Red Wing competed well against the 10th-ranked Eagles.
“We proved tonight we can definitely play with those high-class teams,” Belisle said.
Totino-Grace took advantage of two power-play goals, but the Wingers rallied to make it 3-1 when Stegora scored his fourth goal in the past two games.
While the Eagles found success on the power play, Red Wing failed to convert on any of its five opportunities, despite having quality chances, Belisle said.
“We had some good opportunities,” Belisle said. “We need to score on at least one of those power plays.”
The Wingers had two power plays in the third period.
Jack Burkel, a freshman, made his first start in goal for Red Wing. Burkel made 26 saves on 30 shots.
The Wingers tallied 23 shots for the game.
