Area Sports Roundup: Sept. 30, 2021

The Worthington Trojans boys soccer team, currently ranked fourth in the Minnesota Class AA poll, improved to 13-0 on the season Thursday by winning on the road at Waseca, 5-0. The match began ahead of the scheduled starting time because of the threat of rain.

Jonathan Banegas scored a pair of goals for WHS, while Ulises Barrera, Dalen Gonzalez and Jose Chavez also had goals. Gonzalez’s goal came on a penalty kick.

The Trojans will be back in action on Saturday afternoon for a 2 p.m. match against Faribault.

The Trojans, now 2-12 overall on the season, will next play Tuesday at home against New Ulm.
