New Prague made it 3-2 on a power play goal by Seth Kriha at 9:56, but the Scarlets scored less than a minute later to go back up by two. West added a pair of power play goals early in the third to coast to the win.
Ben Witt and Alex Gregor assisted on both Trojan goals.
West outshot the Trojans 28- 20. Evan Bisek stopped 22 of 28 shots for New Prague.
Polars 1,Trojans 0 New Prague dominated much of the action in a nonconference game Saturday, Dec. 1, at North St. Paul, but was stymied by Polars’ goaltender Mario Bollmann, who stopped all 39 shots he faced to give his team a 1-0 shutout win.
New Prague outshot the Polars 39-22, including a 21-6 advantage in the third period, but Bollmann stopped everything that came his way.
The Trojans had just three penalties, but they proved costly as all three came in a sixminute span in the second period, with the Polars scoring the game’s only goal on the power play.
Bisek also had a good game in goal, stopping 21 of 22 shots.
