WASECA -- The Waseca Bluejays got sterling performances from juniors Miller Carmen and Rodriguez Gabriela in their one-sided win against Worthington.
Carmen scored six goals and Gabriela scored four goals as the Bluejays rolled. The score was 8-0 at halftime.
“We just weren’t marking up on defense at all,” said WHS head coach Emily Ahlquist. “They’d cross it, and backside was wide open. … We beat ourselves tonight.”
A few of the Trojans were unable to make the trip, said Ahlquist, which seemed to sap the team’s energy even before the match began.
Worthington was able to attempt three shots on goal, however. Sophia Montoya Mendez attempted two of them, and Alexa Carda had the other attempt.
Worthington 0 0 -- 0
Waseca 8 4 -- 12
