ST. PETER — The Worthington Trojans boys soccer team lost a tough season-opening game against St. Peter Thursday night, 2-1.

St. Peter registered only two shots throughout the entire first half, but one solid kick from Saints Kaelen Weiss at the 26-minute mark was all it took to make the score 1-0 after the first half.

The Worthington boys fought back early in the second, however, as Andrew Johnson was awarded a free kick at St. Peter’s 18-yard line. With five attackers rushing in, Victor Meza ended up getting a head on the ball and knocking it in to tie the contest.

“We controlled a majority of the game tonight, and I’m proud of our guys for doing that. I was disappointed in the loss, but I am very proud of the team’s effort,” WHS head coach Smitty Ektnitphong said.

In the end, however, St. Peter’s Brennan Kelly scored at the 32-minute mark to score the game-winning goal. Kelly scored after a free kick dribbled loose in front of the Trojan goal, and the senior defender punched it in.

Worthington will try to bounce back against Austin tonight.
