Trojan girls fall to Waconia

Clawing their way back from an 11-2 hole, the New Prague Trojan girls basketball team took a lead in the second half of its Section 5AAA quarterfinal game against Waconia, but couldn’t hold on as they lost to the Wildcats 45-40 Saturday at Minneapolis North High School.

As they have all year, New Prague used an aggressive pressure defense to force turnovers that put them back in the game. However, the taller Wildcat team found a way to beat that pressure in the second half, and the Trojans' aggressiveness worked against them, as they were whistled for 15 fouls in the second half, compared to just five for Waconia. That led to a 21-1 advantage in free throws for the game.

That's the way we play
