Worthington 2, New Prague 0

NEW PRAGUE — In an early regular season matchup against a strong section foe, Worthington scored a goal in both halves and played excellent defense to turn back New Prague.

Alan Flores scored a goal in the first period. In the second period, Oscar Galvez scored a goal from about 45 yards away, sending it over the goalie's head.

WHS out-shot New Prague 10-5.

Trojans head coach Juan Flores said his team played very good defense against a young and talented New Prague team which he described as somewhat similar to his own.


"This is a section win for us, and it's big," Coach Flores said.

Garretson 8, Worthington 0

WORTHINGTON -- Garretson, S.D., defeated Worthington 8-0 on Trojan Field, leading 4-0 at halftime and scoring four more goals in the second half.

Maylin Fabian Perez had a good game in goal for the Trojans, stopping many shot attempts. A particularly exceptional moment occurred in the first half when Perez stopped a penalty kick that happened in the box due to a hand ball.

Head coach Anne Greenway said WHS (0-2) is beginning to see more action on offense than previous years but needs more work on controlling the ball in the midfield.

Garretson 4 4 --8

Worthington 0 0 -- 0
