Boys hockey team tames Tigers

The New Prague Trojans scored three third-period goals to defeat Delano/ Rockford 4-1 in a non-conference boys hockey game Friday, Dec. 19.

The win gives the Trojans a 4-2 record going into their Missota Conference opener with Northfield. That game was scheduled to be played in New Prague Tuesday, Dec. 23, after this edition of The Times went to press.

The first round game will be played Monday, Dec. 29, at 4 p.m. against Prior Lake. The game will be a home game for the Lakers and count in the Missota Conference standings. On Tuesday, Dec. 30, the Trojans face Section 1A rival Faribault at 4 p.m. On Wednesday, Dec. 31, the Trojans will close out the 2008 portion of their schedule against the host Flyers at 7 p.m.
