Boys stay unbeaten in Missota hockey

The New Prague Trojan boys hockey team remained unbeaten in Missota Conference play following a 4-1 win at Red Wing Thursday, Jan. 6. Earlier in the week the Trojans defeated Shakopee 4-2

New Prague (5-6-1, 3-0-0) was scheduled to host Chanhassen Tuesday, Jan. 11. Their next game is Friday, Jan. 14, at Farmington, then the Trojans host Northfield Tuesday, Jan. 18.

Trojans 4, Sabers 2

With the score tied at 2-2, midway through the third period, New Prague's Zach Adams and Luke Lijewski scored goals four seconds apart to give the Trojans a 4-2 win over Shakopee Tuesday, Jan. 4.

New Prague had taken a 2-0 lead with goals in the first 10 minutes of the contest. Adam Corr scored on a pass from Colton Schmidt at 3:2, and sophomore transfer student Jack Pexa scored a power play goal against his former teammates at 9:11, with an assist from Curt Brezina.

Shakopee scored late in the second period, then added a goal early in the third to tie the game.

After the Trojans regained the lead on Adams' unassisted goal at 8:02, the Trojans wasted no time in striking. The puck came toward the Sabers' goal on the ensuing faceoff and the Shakopee goalie came out to play the puck. Lijewski beat him to the puck and fired it in the open net to make it a 2-goal game.
