The senior attacker has always been a goal scorer. But Weller is in a different zone now.
Weller has netted at least one goal in 10 of the Lakers’ past 11 games, and two or more in five of them (four consecutive). Weller had that streak stopped with a one-goal, two-assist performance in Prior Lake’s 4-2 victory over Class 2A, No. 8 Minnetonka.
“Logan is always in the right place at the right time,” coach Mike Shebuski said. “He has a knack for putting the ball away.”
Weller has 19 goals on the season for No. 9 Prior Lake (11-2-1) after his current run of 10 in a five-game stretch.
“None of us are worried about individual stats,” Weller said. “We care about how the team does first. Our team is playing really well right now, and that makes me look that much better.”
Weller wasn’t in the starting lineup for the Lakers at the beginning of the season. That has since changed.
“Logan’s work ethic has been great,” Shebuski said. “He has found his role.”
