Mankato West 10, Worthington 5

MANKATO -- In a fast start, the Worthington High School girls led host Mankato West 2-0 in the first period. But a 6-1 Scarlets flurry in the second period put the hosts in front, and they never looked back.

“Very good game,” said WHS coach Chad Nickel. “Girls completely controlled the first period. Came out sluggish in the second. Fought back some in the third.”

Marin Pederson, a junior forward, scored the first goal for Worthington and finished with a hat trick. Riley Nickel and Madeline Petersen also scored for the Trojans. Lauren Nelson and Pederson were credited with assists.

For the game, Mankato West out-shot Worthington 49-33.
