Scarlets give up goal in final minute to lose

(Continued)

“They (New Prague) gave up 16 shots on goal,” said Doell. “We have close to 16 shots on goal per period. They did the little things right. They didn’t turn over the puck.”

The game seemed destined to go to overtime until Busch’s shot from just inside the blue line lofted past Wollenzien for the game winner.

New Prague brought a quality of competition that the Scarlets had yet to see at home this season and even though they lost, this could prove to be good for them come playoff time.

“It’s good to have a little competition, but with that being said, you can’t take the easy teams lightly,” said Mettler. “You’ve got to keep going and going and prepare for games like this.”

West (11-2) next plays Tuesday against Rochester Lourdes at 7:30 p.m. at All Seasons Arena.
