ST. PETER — Saturday’s contest against Saint Peter was a grueling one for the Worthington boys’ soccer team, but the Trojans managed to earn come away with a 1-0 to remain undefeated on the season.
Worthington’s goal was scored in the second half when Thun Lay headed in a cross from Diego Esquivel.
“It was a cross from Diego from the right and he just headed it in — one of the smallest guys headed it in,” WHS head coach Vilath Lovan said.
The Trojans were playing with a depleted roster in the game and had a number of players playing through injuries and soreness.
“We went up there and I was missing a couple of guys,” Lovan said. “I really didn’t have that many subs and the guys played their heart out. It was a humid, sweaty day.
“We did pretty well, the defense hung on there for us to put the one goal in there, and that’s all that counts.”
WHS was happy to get the win on Saturday to provide some much needed momentum for consecutive home games today and Tuesday. The two games will cap a stretch of three games in four days for the Trojans.
“We took the win home and we’re all happy, even though we didn’t play that great,” Lovan said. “We played good enough to win and that’s all that counts.”
Worthington will host Fairmont today and will then host Mankato West on Tuesday.
