KASSON -- A good start turned into a cold shooting night for the Worthington High School boys basketball team, and host Kasson-Mantorville produced a 74-55 victory on Monday.

“We got out to an early lead. I think we were up 10,” said Worthington head coach CJ Nelson.

But Kasson-Mantorville moved into a 2-3 zone defense with about six minutes go to in the first half, and the Trojans suddenly couldn’t convert shot attempts with any regularity. The KoMets denied the middle, further frustrating the visitors.

Camden Holecek scored 26 points and Jake Hallstrom added 15 for K-M.

Kaleb Knothe and Jacari Swinea scored 14 points each for Worthington, and teammate Jake Brandner added 12 points. Knothe pulled down 12 boards.
