Girls soccer: Gravenhof scores for Trojans
WASECA — Junior McKayla Gravenhof scored in the second half on an assist from Achan Alwal to get Worthington’s varsity girls soccer team on the board Thursday against host Waseca.
That was, however, all the offense the Trojans could muster in a 15-1 loss.
Waseca outscored Worthington 10-0 in the first half and 5-1 in the second as WHS fell to 1-2 on the young season. The loss came on the heels of a victory over Glencoe-Silver Lake which snapped a team winless streak at 22.
But Trojans head coach Emily Ahlquist said she was happy with her team’s effort Thursday.
“Overall, we played really strong. We were connecting passes when we actually had the ball. They were faster, and they connected more passes in a row,” Ahlquist said.
Waseca controlled the ball for most of the game. Worthington didn’t have a shot on goal in the first half, but attempted seven in the second half.
“Their passing has improved drastically,” Ahlquist said of her players. “I’m really impressed with the effort.”
Gravenhof’s goal came on a breakaway. Alwal gave her a through pass and the Trojan scored it in the lower left corner.
Worthington 0 1 — 1
Waseca 10 5 — 15
