In high school hockey Saturday, both Worthington teams were on the road at Minnesota River.


In boys action, the Trojans were defeated 11-4. Worthington took a 1-0 edge in the first period on a Dominic Pavelko goal that was assisted by Kyle Ahrenstroff. Minnesota River then went ahead 2-1, but an unassisted goal by Easton Newman and another score from Pavelko made it 3-2 Trojans in the second period. The next six goals were then scored by Minnesota River. The final WHS goal came unassisted from Ian Bumgardner in the third period.


In the girls game, Minnesota River blanked Worthington 6-0.
