JACKSON -- Worthington’s offense kicked it into another gear in its 82-49 girls basketball victory over Jackson County Central.

“Tonight we finally did the thing we haven’t done all season and kept up the pace,” Trojans head coach Eric Lindner said. “We played a lot of very good transition basketball.”

Emily Shaffer led the Trojans with 24 points, including three 3-pointers.

“I have to give Shaffer a lot of credit for hitting those shots,” Lindner said. “Because when she does that, it brings the defenders out and they can’t pack it in under the basket.”

Emma Thuringer scored 14 points for Worthington, and Anneke Weg scored 12, and Evelyn Othow scored 10.


Annika Lilleberg led JCC with nine points, and Melissa Brant scored eight.

Worthington is back to .500 on the season at 4-4 and plays Adrian on Thursday. JCC falls to 1-5 and plays Luverne on Thursday.
