Boys take 6th at Duluth tourney

The New Prague Trojan boys hockey team took sixth place at the Duluth Heritage Classic last week, losing to Duluth Central and Bemidji and defeating Buffalo in a shootout. The Buffalo contest will go in the books officially as a tie, since the Minnesota State High School League does not recognize shootout results.

The Trojans (3-6-1) were scheduled to return to action Tuesday, Jan. 4, at Shakopee. New Prague will play at Red Wing Thursday, Jan. 6, and return home Tuesday, Jan. 11, to face Chanhassen.

New Prague faced off against the host Duluth Central Trojans and put themselves in a hole, allowing three second period goals to trail 3-0 after two.

New Prague fought back, with Adam Corr scoring a power play goal early in the third, with an assist from Cody Meyer. Central made it 4-1 with a goal at 9:03 of the second, but New Prague answered 24 seconds later on a goal by Luke Lijewski, assisted by Cole Mason.

Central outshot New Prague 41-18, including a 33-3 advantage through the first two periods. New Prague fought back to outshoot Central 14-8 in the third. Joe Morris stopped 37 shots for New Prague.
