Zephyrs' fast start too much for Trojans

The Mahtomedi Zephyrs were too big and too quick for the New Prague Trojans as they ended the Trojans' season with a 31-15 state quarterfinal win Thursday at Macalester College in St. Paul.

It was the second time in three years that the Zephyrs beat the Trojans in the state playoffs. The teams met in the semifinals and scored a come-from-behind win over the Trojans in 2005.

The Zephyrs didn't need to come back this time. They took the opening drive and marched 80 yards on eight plays before scoring on a 21-yard touchdown pass from Vaughn Schmid to Justin Gominsky.
