WORTHINGTON -- Getting on top early and staying on top throughout, the Worthington Trojans varsity volleyball team outclassed Fairmont 3-0 at the WHS gymnasium Monday night, demonstrating superiority in every phase of its performance. The Trojans won just their third match of the 2018 season, but it was hard to believe they hadn’t won more contests when witnessing their 25-13, 25-17, 25-12 victory.
WORTHINGTON -- The worst way to lose a soccer match is by shootout. If it’s in a high school section match, it’s even worse.
FAIRMONT -- Senior quarterback Garrett Myren had a hand in three first half touchdowns and the Fairmont Cardinals dumped the visiting Worthington Trojans 36-6 in a high school football game Friday night.
WORTHINGTON -- Here’s a news flash: The Minnesota West Community and Technical College football team needs to rediscover its offense. No shocker there. The Bluejays shut down altogether on offense last Saturday in their 39-7 loss to Dakota College at Trojan Field. The passing game didn’t work, the running game didn’t work. And the defense was on the field too long, compromising that unit, too.
WORTHINGTON -- It was a tip-top Thursday night for the Luverne Cardinals volleyball team, which evened its record at 11-11 at the expense of the home-standing Worthington Trojans. For Worthington, however, it was another frustrating evening. The Trojans do many things well, at times, on the volleyball court. But throughout the season they’ve been unable to put it all together, and that has left them with a 2-18 record.
WORTHINGTON -- Adam Koller’s progress as a runner has been measured and steady. He achieved varsity on the Worthington Trojans cross country team during his seventh-grade season and the light bulb went off in his head. “I kind of knew that I had a talent for running,” he said.
WORTHINGTON -- Keyri Gutierrez thought she was finished playing goalie. A senior on Worthington’s girls soccer team, Gutierrez had moved out from the net to midfield. But when injuries took their toll on the Trojans, she was there to fill the void.
WORTHINGTON -- They needed a win in a big way. They got it, as Reynaldo Paniagua booted a 21-yard field goal in the final three seconds. The Worthington Trojans football team, coming off losses 62-6 to Marshall and 35-21 to St. Peter on homecoming night, edged winless Belle Plaine 31-28 on Friday in a gutsy, never-say-die performance.
WORTHINGTON -- Monday’s girls varsity soccer match between Marshall and Worthington seemed destined to end in a 0-0 tie. But with 2:35 remaining in the second overtime, the Trojans’ Ariel Reveles caught a corner kick from teammate Marilyn Orellana and placed it cleanly in the Tigers’ goal. The kick held up. Worthington prevailed 1-0 and, with it, improved its fall record to 2-9-2.
WORTHINGTON -- The offense was sluggish, the defense bent and sometimes broke, and the Minnesota West Community and Technical College football team was humbled on Trojan Field Saturday afternoon by Dakota College. For the second straight weekend, the Bluejays failed to score in double figures. A week earlier they lost 28-7 on the road against North Dakota State College of Science, and for the second weekend in a row a North Dakota team rolled over a punchless Jays unit.
