Girls shut out Wingers, fall to Stars in Missota play

The No. 8-ranked New Prague High School girls hockey team registered its second straight shutout with a 7-0 win over Red Wing, then lost to No. 4-ranked Holy Angels 5-2. The team was 7-3 in the conference, 17-4 overall going into Tuesday's game against No. 6-ranked Farmington.

The Trojans' season winds down this week, as they play their final three regular season games. On Thursday, Jan. 20, they play at Northfield. On Tuesday, Jan. 25, they host Prior Lake, and on Thursday, Jan. 27, they host Shakopee in a senior night game.

The Section 1A playoffs begin Tuesday, February 1. New Prague, the defending section champions, appear to be a lock for the No. 1 seed, which would mean a first-round bye. Their second-round game would be played at home on Thursday, Feb. 3.
