BOYS HOCKEY: Dragons hit hard by Trojans, Tigers

NEW PRAGUE — New Prague poured it on and Litchfield/Dassel-Cokato (LDC) couldn’t do anything about it until it was too late Tuesday night at the New Prague Community Center.

The host Trojans scored the first five goals en route to a 5-1 win in the Wright County Conference game.

Jake Johnson scored LDC’s only goal. He broke Matt Schmidt’s shutout bid with 1:19 to play in the third period.

Delano 5, LDC 0

LITCHFIELD — That late third-period goal scored by LDC’s Jake Johnson Tuesday in the 5-1 road loss at New Prague prevented the Dragons from being shut out for the second game in a row.

In the prior game, Delano visited LDC and blanked the Dragons a 5-0 Jan. 11.

Tiger goalie Cade Lommel made 11 saves in the shutout.

LDC’s Darby Halonen made 32 saves on 37 Delano shots.


BOYS BASKETBALL: Chargers downed in three games

LITCHFIELD — The problem of finding points that has plagued Dassel-Cokato for most of the season continued Tuesday night at Litchfield, where the Chargers fell 56-33 to the Dragons in a Wright County Conference West affair.

When Dassel-Cokato’s leading scorer, Sanders Asplin, is held scoreless, that is a problem for the Chargers.

The Dragons bottled up Asplin all night. He did not  even attempt a free throw.

Asplin averages more than 19 points per game. Tuesday night was the first game in which he did not score in the team’s 10 games this season. Asplin’s previous low was 14 points in the season-opener against Becker.

HLWW 42, DC 33

HOWARD LAKE — A measurement of the rim circumference at the west end of the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted High School gymnasium may need to be taken after the Jan. 11 game between the host Lakers and the visiting Chargers of Dassel-Cokato.

Scoring at that end of the floor was minimal for both teams on both sides of halftime.

HLWW shot at that end the first half, and scored 14 points. The challenge to fit the ball through the rim fell on the hands of the Chargers in the second half. They managed to score only 13 points in 18 minutes.

At the east end of the court, the Lakers out-scored the Chargers 28-20.

HLWW won the game 42-33.

GSL 58, DC 51

COKATO — A well-played game by both squads went the way of Glencoe-Silver Lake Jan. 11, when Dassel-Cokato hosted the Panthers in a Wright County Conference West game.

A one-point, 25-24, GSL lead at halftime moved to seven points in the second half, when the Panthers out-scored the Chargers 33-27.

The Panthers won the game 58-51.

“I  liked the effort we put forward against GSL. We were solid on the glass and defended well,” said Dassel-Cokato coach David Chvojicek. “Our inability to take care of the ball really hamstrung us.”

Waconia proved to Dassel-Cokato/Litchfield (DCL) Jan. 9 that it can stand on its own in pool.

The host Wildcats defeated the Chargers 107-63.

It was the first home meet for Waconia, which was previously part of the Delano/Watertown-Mayer co-op.

“First ever boys meet for them and they have started on the right foot with a good group of kids and coaches,” DCL coach Perter Travis said of Waconia.

Waconia swimmers won all 11 events. (There was no diving.)
