Adapted floor hockey team heads to state

The New Prague/Tri-City United/Le Sueur-Henderson adapted floor hockey team followed up on its perfect regular season by winning a state tournament play-in game against Wayzata/Minnetonka 18-3 Wednesday, March 6, to clinch a  No. 1 seed in the State CI Adapted Floor Hockey Tournament, which begins Friday, March 15. The Trojans (11-0) scored an astounding eight goals in the first five minutes of their game and coasted to the win. Coach Shellie Kriha said the team is looking forward to the upcoming state tournament. “We have reached our goal of winning the conference and making it to state,” she said. “We have a wonderful group of players who have worked very hard, and we are proud of all of them.” The Trojans go into the state tournament as the No. 1 seed from the south. They will face the No. 4 team from the north, Maple Grove, at 8 p.m. Friday at Bloomington Jefferson High School. Win or lose, the Trojans play again on Saturday. If they win either of their first two games, they will play a third game on Saturday afternoon. (Chuck Kajer, The New Prague Times Photo)
