Worthington 1, New Ulm 0

NEW ULM -- With just one game remaining in the regular season prior to section tournament time, the Worthington Trojans are anxious to play up to their abilities. Tuesday was a good step in a 1-0 win over host New Ulm.

“I think this is a big win for us. I think the kids are ready for the challenge, and they stepped up for it,” said WHS head coach Juan Flores.


New Ulm’s turf soccer field was wet, and the air was cold. But the Trojans got a first-half goal from Ulises Barrera on a free kick about 25 yards away from the goal. It nailed the top left corner of the net.

Worthington’s defense was solid, said Flores. The Eagles had three shots on goal while the Trojans had eight.

Worthington concludes the regular season Thursday at Fairmont.

Worthington 1 0 -- 1

New Ulm 0 0 -- 0
