New Ulm 7, Worthington 2

NEW ULM -- It’s not yet causing victories, but the Worthington High School girls soccer team has noticeably improved its offensive capabilities. On Tuesday, New Ulm defeated Worthington 7-2 in New Ulm to move the locals to 0-12-1 on the season.

Any time Worthington scores, it’s another reminder that the team is making progress.


“It’s fun to watch them, because they can make a lot of offensive action happen,” said head coach Anne Greenway Tuesday night.

Princess Martinez scored a first half goal for the Trojans against New Ulm off of a corner kick by Sara Esquivel. In the second half, teammate Leidy Chavez scored with Sahyra Talamantes being credited with an assist.

Greenway said the score might have been closer had Worthington not been without some key players on defense. Offensively, though, she said the Trojans are getting the ball into the offensive side of the field on a much more regular basis, regardless of the quality of the opponent.

Earlier this fall, New Ulm defeated Worthington 9-0.
