Prep girls soccer: Worthington drops tight game
WILLMAR — It was a game the Worthington Trojans girls soccer team thought it should have won. But a sluggish first half set the tone for defeat Saturday in Willmar.
The Trojans fell 2-0 to the hosts. Willmar scored its first goal in the first five minutes of the first half and added another in the second, shutting out the visitors throughout.
“They just outplayed us,” said Worthington head coach Emily Ahlquist. “But it was a game we should not have lost. Just because we were not playing on at all, we lost the game.”
Ahlquist said the Trojans came out in “slow motion” for the start and didn’t recover for the first 30 minutes. The team didn’t move the ball well when it had possession of it, failing to get in sync offensively through much of the contest. The Trojans did have some chances to score in the last 10 minutes of the first half, and then a few times in the second half, though they were unable to come through in the end.
Worthington (1-3) next plays at home against Fairmont Thursday.
