CANNON FALLS -- The underdog Worthington Trojans fell to Cannon Falls 3-2 in overtime Saturday in their Section 2A girls soccer opener, coming as close as they had all season in securing that elusive victory.

Worthington finished the season with a 0-16-1 record, but they finished the season much better than where they began it. Four of their final five games were very tight matches, beginning with a 2-2 tie with Jordan. Next came a 2-1 loss to New Ulm, a 7-0 loss to St. Peter, a 1-0 loss to Glencoe-Silver Lake, and finally the one-goal loss to Cannon Falls.

The Trojans scored one goal in the first half and another in the second half. A freshman, Saleen Thepmontry, scored the first goal. A sophomore, Aracely Vasquez, scored the second goal. Goalkeeper Emme Schmitz was credited with performing admirably in goal for the visitors.

“We had a ton of breakaways, and just shot ‘em wide every time, or their goalie came out and saved ‘em,” said WHS head coach Emily Ahlquist after Saturday’s sectional showdown. “Their goalie had a really nice game as well.”

Worthington put six shots on goal in the first half compared to 12 for Cannon Falls. Both teams had nine shots in the second half. Cannon Falls had three and Worthington two in overtime.

“The girls played really hard. It would have been nice to end with a win, but they were very close,” Ahlquist said.

Worthington 1 1 0 -- 2

Cannon Falls 1 1 1 -- 3
