WHS girls soccer team falls to Loyola


MANKATO -- Despite playing with a short bench on Thursday, the Worthington girls soccer team had its chances against Mankato Loyola.

However, the Trojans didn’t have an answer for Mariah Sadaka, who scored two goals for the Crusaders in a 3-1 victory. Loyola’s other goal came on a penalty kick in the second half.

The Trojans scored once and had other opportunities.

“We had a cross from Andrea Rivera to Saleen Thepmontry and she almost got taken out from behind, but stuck with it and laid it in the net,” WHS head coach Emily Ahlquist said. “It was beautiful. We had some really, really nice shots on net. Sofia Montoya Mendez had a beautiful shot on net that just hit the top cross bar. It was so close.”

The Trojans had just three bench players on Thursday, hindering any rest the players could get.


“They played really, really well, but they just ran out of steam,” Ahlquist said.

WHS is at St. Peter on Tuesday.

Worthington 1 0 -- 1

Mankato Loyola 1 2 -- 3
