Waseca 5, Worthington 2

WASECA -- Charlie Huttemier had a hat trick as Waseca defeated the Worthington Trojans boys hockey team Friday night, 3-2.

After the Bluejays outscored Worthington 3-0 in the first period, Worthington outscored the Bluejays 2-0 in the second. The final two goals were scored by the home team.

“They’re a highly skilled team. They were kind of all over us. We got it down to one point. They worked harder. They wanted it more,” said WHS head coach Tyler Nienkerk.

Blake Luinenberg and Andrew Benson scored Worthington’s goals. Alec Langerud and Benson were credited with assists on the Luinenburg goal. Benson’s goal was unassisted.

Waseca out-shot the Trojans 53-18 in the game.
