The Semi-final round of the Section 1 AAA playoffs took place Saturday night from New Prague High School as the Trojans played host to the Albert Lea Tigers.
Both teams coming out of the gates playing fast and aggressive on both side of the floor, pushing the ball up court and taking advantage of fast break opportunities. A close game early on as neither team was able to really show that they could take control of this game until a surge of offensive by New Prague sparked by three consecutive three pointers in the midst of a 11-0 run by the Trojans put the Tigers in a big whole going into half time.
The Second half was completely controlled by the Trojans as they were not slowed at all by the defensive scheme of the Tigers. At one point stretching the out to as much as 30 points. Albert Lea unable to climb out of the whole they dug themselves in the first half as they fall to New Prague Saturday night by a final score of 85-59.
Up next for the Trojans they will travel down to the Mayo Civic Center where they will take on the winner of the Austin v. Winona match-up, you will have that game with us on KCHK/KRDS Sports.
