Floor hockey team on top of conference

The New Prague Adapted Floor hockey team is in first place in the Minnesota Adapted Athletics South Division following a pair of wins last week.

New Prague toppled Stillwater 12-1 and St. Paul Humboldt 13-1 to up their season record to 5-0-1. The Trojans faced Minneapolis Edison on Monday, Feb. 5, and were scheduled to take on South Washington County Wednesday, Feb. 7. New Prague hosts Burnsville/Farmington/ Lakeville on Monday, Feb. 12, and play at South Suburban Wednesday, Feb. 14, at Bloomington Jefferson.

Trojans 12, Ponies 1 New Prague traveled to Stillwater to take on a firstyear program and dominated play.

"They have a young group, and their lack of experience was evident," said Coach Shellie Kriha. "It was a good reminder of where we were when we started in our first year or two of adapted sports."

She said team members did a nice job working on specific things during the game. "We learned that it’s not always about scoring goals."

Evan Minar led the Trojans with four goals. Eva Johnson had three goals and an assist and Garrett Gagner had two goals and an assist. Also scoring were Lydia Hayle and Breanna Stark, each with one goal and one assist, Alexis Parks, one goal, and Chase Smith and Seth Dorner, one assist each.

Trojans 13, Hawks 1 Kriha said Humboldt is a team that struggles with numbers and brought just six players to New Prague. "Our depth allows us to get breaks and always keep fresh legs on the floor which is nice to have, but not all teams have that benefit." she said.

New Prague led 10-0 after the first 10 minutes of the game, and after that the Trojans worked on different positions and passing skills.

Dorner and Gagner each had four goals and an assist. Parks had a goal and four assists, Minar had a goal and three assists, Hayle and Dylan Raaen each had a goal and an assist and Smith had a goal.
