Gregor scored twice and Isaacson once in the Trojans' three-goals-in 158-seconds flurry in the second period that turned momentum permanently toward New Prague.

Chisago Lakes had opened the scoring on William Knaak's first-period tally, but it Kriha matched it knotting the game at 1-1 through one period.

Kriha scored again in the third to make it 5-1 before Chisago Lakes' Blake Lizotte stopped the flurry of five unanswered New Prague goals.

Conner Wagner made seven saves earning the victory.
