Boys hockey team tops Farmington

The New Prague Trojan boys hockey team split a pair of close games last week, losing to Chanhassen in overtime and beating Farmington with a late goal.

New Prague (7-7-1, 4-3 Missota) will host Holy Angels Friday, Jan. 20, then hosts Chaska on Tuesday, Jan. 24.

Storm 3, Trojans 2

The Trojans' Jordan Holicky scored an unassisted power play goal with less than three minutes remaining in regulation to give New Prague a 2-1 lead over league-leading Chanhassen Tuesday, Jan. 10, in Victoria. But the Storm responded with a shorthanded goal with 1:15 remaining, then scored the game-winner in overtime.

The Trojans got the game's first goal with Jack Pexa scoring unassisted at 8:01 in the first period.

Chanhassen tied the game in the second and it remained 1-1 until that late scoring surge.

Shots were close to even, with the Trojans holding a 21-20 advantage. Joe Morris made 17 saves in the loss.

Trojans 2, Tigers 1

New Prague outshot Farmington throughout the contest played Thursday, Jan. 12, but the Tigers got the first goal of the game at 3:35 of the second period to take a 1-0 lead.

Kain Wagner tied the game for the Trojans at 9:53 of the second period, with assists to Seth Kriha and Austin Kilian.

The Trojans scored at 15:50 of the third with Kilian getting the puck past the Farmington goaltender in a scramble. Assists went to Luke Lijewski and Colton Schmidt. The goal was set up by a nice move by Lijewski who brought the puck along the left boards and skated behind the net, then putting the puck in front of the net for Schmidt and Kilian to have a go at it.

New Prague outshot the Tigers 35-26, with Morris stopping 25 shots.
