Scarlets thump Trojans, 60-14

The New Prague Trojans never had a chance against the No. 1-ranked Mankato West Scarlets in their season-opening football game Thursday, Sept. 1.

University of Minnesota recruit Philip Nelson completed 10 of 16 passes for five touchdowns and ran for another - all in the first half - as West defeated New Prague 60-14 at Trojan Field. The Scarlets led 52-0 at halftime.

The 60 points scored by West tied for the most ever given up by the Trojans in the program's history, according the the team's website. In 1935, New Prague lost to Le Center 60-0.
