Trojan girls crush Saints to go to 7-2

New Prague's girls basketball team used a fast-paced offensive attack and strong defense to crush St. Peter 91-48 Tuesday, Dec. 21.

The Trojans are 7-2 on the season, and are off until after the Christmas break. They will return to action Tuesday, Jan. 4, when they host Holy Angels in a Missota Conference game. On Thursday, Jan. 6, they travel to Orono.

Trojans 91, Saints 48
