Win streak ends at 7, but girls bounce back with win over Shakopee

New Prague’s girls basketball team saw its 7-game unbeaten streak come to an end with a 66-58 loss at Holy Angels Friday. Earlier in the week, New Prague had no problem dispatching Shakopee, winning 65-45.

The Trojans (6-2 in the conference, 12-6 overall) were scheduled to host Hutchinson on Tuesday, Feb. 7. On Friday, Feb. 10, they play at Northfield. They return home Tuesday, Feb. 14, for their final home game against Farmington. They close out the regular season with three road games, beginning February 16 at Red Wing.

Trojans 65, Sabers 45

New Prague used a balanced scoring attack to build a 12-point halftime lead on their way to a 65-45 win over Shakopee Tuesday, Jan. 31, at New Prague.

Whitney Trecker had nine first half points, Katelyn Meger eight and Camille Kratochvil and Becky Theisen seven each for New Prague. Shakopee’s offense was one-dimensional, as sophomore Casey Christian scored 15 points, more than half her team’s total in the first half.

The Trojans shut down Christian in the second half, holding her to a single field goal. The Trojans continued to play strong team defense, holding Shakopee to just 17 points in the second half.

The Trojans had 15-point efforts from Mandy Haecherl and Theisen. Meger finished with 12 points.
