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.

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