WINDOM -- It was a battle between two solid Big South Conference teams, both who have been playing very well lately. The Eagles prevailed, basically because they enjoyed a very hot shooting night.

They made 13 3-point shots.

Worthington and Windom Area traded baskets in the first half. The Trojans had a six-point lead at one point, but led just by one (44-43) at the half.

“In the second half they just went on a streak where there were three possessions where they hit 3’s, and we couldn’t recover from that,” said Trojans head coach Eric Lindner.

Allison Letcher and Delaney Smith scored 29 points apiece for the Eagles, and teammate Kait Huska added 21.

Tarryn Spartz scored 25 for Worthington. Olivia Hayenga had 17 and Brooklyn Scheitel-Taylor 13. Sophie Wietzema had 10 rebounds and Scheitel-Taylor had seven assists and six steals.

Worthington committed 14 turnovers to Windom Area’s 11.

Minnesota River 2, Worthington 1

LE SUEUR -- Minnesota River won by a single goal, and the goal that really stuck in Worthington’s craw was when the Bulldogs scored literally with less than a second remaining in the second period.

That goal, by Brandon O’Keefe, knotted the score at 1-1. With about 11 minutes remaining in the third period Ethan Hathaway scored the game-winner.

Worthington’s goal was scored in the second period by Andrew Benson, unassisted from the top of the circle.

Steven Adams did an outstanding job in goal for the Trojans. Minnesota River out-shot the visitors 34-26.

Worthington 0 1 0 -- 1
