Trojan girls remain atop Missota

New Prague High School's girls basketball team, ranked No. 9 in Class AAA, won a pair of games last week. The Trojans defeated Prior Lake and Shakopee in a pair of Missota Conference home games. They are 13-3 on the season and 6-0 in the Missota Conference.

The Trojans were scheduled to face Holy Angels on Tuesday. They will finish a six-game homestand Thursday, Jan. 31, against Hutchinson, then travel to Northfield on Monday, Feb. 4.

Trojans 62, Lakers 59

New Prague jumped to a double-digit lead early in their game against Prior Lake Tuesday, Jan. 22, and they needed all of that lead.

That's because the Lakers closed to within five points at halftime and came to within a point late in the game before the Trojans finished off the Lakers with a 62-59 win.

In the end it was free throws, a thorn in the side to the Trojans all season long, that won it. New Prague made 23 of 32 from the line, for 72 percent, much better than the 50-percent mark they had been hovering at in recent games. Junior Amanda Wagner led the Trojans with 20 points and was 9-of-10 from the line. Sophomore Maggie Weiers added 16 points, and Brit Rynda scored 10.
