FAIRMONT -- Sophomore Jonathan Banegas scored three goals as Worthington High’s boys soccer team completed an unbeaten regular season with a 5-0 victory over the Fairmont Cardinals here Thursday night.

Seniors Mir Gossom and Menkem Mehri also scored goals for the Trojans of coach Juan Flores, who improved to 16-0.

“We played real well. It was one of our better games,” said Flores. “But now the regular season is done and our focus shifts to the section tournament, where it’s win or go home. So that’s the mentality we’ve got to have moving forward.”

Banegas has had a spectacular season for the Trojans.

“He had some good finishes,” Flores said. “He took care of his assignment, which is putting the ball in the back of the net.”

“We’ve got a good group of guys,” said Flores. “But it will be tough.”
