Huskies down Trojans, 55-13

Junior linebacker Connor McWilliams (31) forces out an Owatonna receiver during the Trojans loss to the Huskies Wednesday, Oct. 17. 

The New Prague Trojan football team lost its regular season finale to Owatonna Wednesday, Oct. 17, 55-13. The Trojans (1-7)  will open the Section 2AAAAA playoffs Tuesday, Oct. 23, as the No. 6 seed and travel to No. 3 seed Mankato West (7-1). 
The defending state champion Huskies, ranked No. 1 in Class AAAAA, took a quick lead, scoring on a 70-yard run on its first possession, then after an interception, scoring again to lead 13-0 before the game was two minutes old. They led 41-0 after one quarter and 55-0 at halftime. 
The Trojans scored on their first possession of the second half on a 64-yard pass from Parker Johnson to Karson Mulvihill. They scored again in the fourth quarter on a quarterback sneak by Matt Zweber. 
West received the No. 3 seed for the section playoffs despite having a better record than No. 2 Chanhassen. Section 2AAAAA uses the MSHSL's Quality Ratings Formula (QRF), which uses a team's record and strength of schedule to rank teams. 
In the other first round game No. 4 Chaska (5-3) hosts No. 5 Bloomington Jefferson (2-6). Semifinals on Saturday, Oct. 27, will have the Chaska-Jefferson winner at No. 1 Waconia (7-1) and the Mankato West-New Prague winner at Chanhassen (6-2). 
The section championship game on Friday, Nov. 2, will be hosted by the highest remaining seed.
