Eric Heidebrink pitched the first three innings for Worthington and Linder pitched the next two. Walks hurt Worthington in the middle innings, but the team righted itself. Tucker Sorenson pitched the last two innings, allowing no runs with three walks and five strikeouts. He picked up the win.
Logan Knutson pitched well for Heron Lake in going the distance.
