Three Worthington High School winter athletic teams were on the road Tuesday night.

The boys basketball team was in Luverne, the wrestling team was in Redwood Falls, and the girls hockey team was in Luverne.

Here’s a summary of the results:

Boys basketball Worthington 73, Luverne 58 LUVERNE -- Lucas Boever scored 21 points with nine rebounds and three blocks as the Trojans adjusted in the face of a tough triangle-and-two defense.

Worthington had some difficulty in the first half figuring out the LHS defense, which looked like a 2-3 zone at times. It was designed to limit the offensive output of the Trojans’ two outstanding scoring guards, Karasharo Ojulu and Terbuto Ochothow. Meanwhile, however, Boever stepped up.

“We made some adjustments. And they left Lucas open and he knocked down a three (-point shot),” said WHS head coach Clint Meyer. “It really helped his confidence.”

Ojulu and Ochothow weren’t shut out, however, as they both scored 19 points. Ojulu also had five rebounds, four assists and five steals. Ochothow had five rebounds and eight assists.

Trojan Brock Bruns came up with seven rebounds.

Derek Lundgren led Luverne with 14 points. Isaiah Bartels had 13 points and Bailey Cowell had 12.

In the heavyweight match, the Trojans’ Kyle Mullaney managed a 6-3 decision over Chad Maddock, but Mullaney needed a pin to pull his team even.

After losing at 106 pounds, Worthington won the next four weight classes to jump into the lead. Oscar Galvez (113) earned a 6-5 decision over Damico Arredondo, Damon Schutz (120) won 5-1 over Owen Bertram, Mason Schutz (126) won by fall in 3:47 over Charlie Millhausen, and Lay K Paw (132) pinned Jaxon Lang in 3:26.

But Redwood-River Valley won at 138 and 145. Worthington’s Jaden Hennings pinned Maverick Goblirsch in 5:54 at 152. Redwood’s Tayte Harazin won by forfeit at 160, before Worthington’s Brayden Donkersloot scored a 16-6 major decision over Andy Fischer at 170.

At 192, RRV’s Mason Rummel won by 20-5 technical fall over Cole Hennings, and at 195, James Ploeger edged the Trojans’ Jacob Neuberger 7-5.
