FAIRMONT - Worthington started strong, but numerous penalties caused the boys hockey team to lose its grip on the Fairmont Cardinals in the second period.
Freshman Ryan Newman put Worthington on the board less than five minutes into the first with assists from Alan Olhausen and Bryce Olsen. The Trojans kept the puck in the Cardinals’ zone for most of the period and prevented them from scoring.
The Worthington boys started picking up penalties in the second period, allowing Fairmont to take over and score four goals. The total penalty time for the Trojans added to 39 minutes, but they demonstrated a strong defense as they only allowed one goal while short-handed.
The away team displayed a clear effort to take back the ice in the third and prevent the Cardinals from scoring, however it wasn’t able to add any more points to its score. The Trojans took more shots on goal during the first and third periods, and Fairmont ended with 32 to their 30.
Worthington is still searching for a win at 0-12 and will travel to Waseca on Monday.

Immediately following the first Windom Area penalty in the second period, he picked up another goal.
