New Ulm sweeps Worthington in Friday baseball twinbill

The New Ulm Eagles scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to rally past Worthington, 7-4, in the second game of a doubleheader Friday at the Worthington Middle School Field. The Eagles also came out on top in the first game, beating the Trojans 8-4.

WHS, now 0-7 on the spring, trailed 3-2 heading in the top of the sixth but then grabbed their first lead of the season. Ironically, the rally began with a strikeout, as Chase Byrne fanned but was able to reach base when the ball skipped away from New Ulm’s catcher. The Trojans then got consecutive singles from Tucker Brandner, Matthias Noble and Cooper McCoy – with McCoy’s coming on a suicide squeeze bunt -- to go out in front.

Worthington retired two of the first three Eagle batters in the sixth, but two singles and a triple -- followed by another batting reaching after a wild pitch on a strikeout and an additional single – gave New Ulm a three-run cushion.

McCoy had two singles and a double for the Trojans in the game, while Noble contributed a pair of singles. Triston Sauerbrei took the loss on the mound.

In game one, WHS fell behind 5-0 after two and half innings but got two back on starting pitcher Cade Grimmius’ two-run single in the bottom of the third. The Trojans wound up getting four runs on 11 hits compared to New Ulm’s eight runs on just five hits, as the Eagles took advantage of four Worthington errors and multiple bases on balls. Brandon Bosma had two singles and a double for the Trojans, McCoy a single and double, Sauerbrei two singles and Brandner a double.


The Worthington Community Football Club earned a tie in its inaugural game in the United Premier Soccer League, as the Toros rallied to earn a 2-2 draw at the Maplebrook 58ers.

The Toros trailed 2-0 with less than 20 minutes to play in the second half, but forward Prince Lebbi scored twice for Worthington. The Toros play at the St. Croix Soccer Club on May 7.


Sibley-Ocheyedan’s Madison Brouwer earned a bronze medal Friday at the prestigious Drake Relays in Des Moines, finishing third in the 800 meters with a time of 2:12.03.


In girls golf Friday afternoon, host Worthington defeated Marshall 196-202. The Tigers’ Dayton Webskowski was medalist with a 46. Lilly Mahlberg shot a 47 for the Trojans and Madison Beckmann had a 49. Tarren Spartz and Ellie Weg each had rounds of 50.

In boys golf, Marshall edged WHS 158-161. Logan Powers and Tyler Jaycox tied for low round for the Trojans at 38.
