The Worthington Trojans boys soccer team improved to 3-0 on the season Tuesday night with a 4-0 win at St. Peter.

In the second half, the Trojans broke through when Byron Echeverria got WHS on the board. Charles Saydee made it 2-0, Santos Orellana made it 3-0 and another Echeverria goal completed the scoring. Another highlight of the match was a big save from Trojan goalie Osmin Pineda when the game was scoreless in the first half.
