Boys top Sabers, Wingers, to stay in 2nd in Missota hockey

The New Prague Trojan boys hockey team won a pair of Missota Conference games last week, defeating Shakopee and Red Wing.

The Trojans (11-9-1, 9-1 Missota) were scheduled to face Chanhassen Tuesday, Feb. 8. They host Farmington Thursday, Feb. 10, and play at Northfield Tuesday, Feb. 15, before ending their regular season at home against Holy Angels Friday, Feb. 18.

Trojans 4, Sabers 2

A shaky start to the second period had the Trojans worried as the Sabers scored two goals for a 2-1 lead. But New Prague regrouped and scored twice to regain the lead and added an insurance goal early in the third for the win Tuesday, Feb. 1.

The Trojans scored with just 28 seconds remaining in the first period on a goal by James Oak, assisted by Cole Mason.

The Sabers tied it at 4:21 of the second, then scored a power play goal at 7:45 to take the lead. Coach Chris Lonke pulled goaltender Joe Morris in favor of Evan Bisek and the Trojans got back into a rhythm. Jordan Holicky tied the game at 10:09, with assists to Adam Corr and Luke Lijewski. Ryan Richardson put the Trojans back on top with a goal at 14:14, with assists to Cody Meyer and Mason.

Morris was back in the net for the third period, and the Trojans dominated play, outshooting the Sabers 14-4. Colton Schmidt added a goal for the Trojans, with assists to Mike Fadden and Holicky.

The Trojans outshot the Sabers 48-30 for the game. Bisek got the win in goal, stopping all nine shots he faced, while Morris stopped 19 of 21.

Trojans 3, Wingers 1

New Prague jumped on top early and played a strong game in defeating Red Wing 3-1 Friday, Feb. 4, at the New Prague Area Community Center.

Meyer put New Prague on top just 2:31 into the game, with assists from Mason and Oak. The Trojans scored again at 7:15 of the second when Richardson got a power play goal, with Meyer and Zach Adams assisting.

Red Wing pulled to within a goal at 4:27 of the third, but New Prague got that one back with a power play goal at 9:54, with Adams scoring from Meyer and Richardson.

New Prague had a 32-22 advantage in shots, with Morris getting the win with 21 saves.
