Trojans fall to Mahtomedi in semifinals
Chuck Kajer, Managing Editor
Things started out great for the New Prague Trojan football team Saturday in their semifinal game against Mahtomedi.
Before the Metrodome crowd had a chance to settle in their seats, the Trojans were on the scoreboard as junior Tony Kubes returned the opening kick 94 yards for a touchdown. Eric Olson hit the extra point and New Prague led 7-0 just 13 seconds into the game.
New Prague’s defense opened up with a bang as well, with Mahtomedi quarterback Matt Jeans being sacked by Daren Geyen on third down, forcing a Zephyr punt.
