Trojan boys hoops win at buzzer; girls edged

Kaleb Knothe hit a short floater near the right side block as the buzzer sounded Tuesday night, lifting guest Worthington to a 63-62 triumph over Pipestone Area.

The Trojans, now 14-3, trailed by nine points in the second half, but then changed the defense up and were able to create some turnovers and climb closer. Trailing by one late, Knothe was fouled on a 3-point shot, then made two-of-three free throws to put Worthington up 61-60. The Arrows, however, answered with a putback on a miss with eight seconds left, setting the stage for Knothe’s heroics.

Knothe paced Worthington offensively with 24 points, while Abagotte Opiew contributed 15.


In girls basketball Tuesday night, Worthington rallied from a late seven-point deficit with an 8-0 run, but visiting Pipestone Area got a huge 3-point shot from Kyla Hubbling and wound up edging the Trojans 55-52.

The Arrows’ seven-point advantage at 49-42 was the largest by either team. Pipestone Area also led 32-26 early in the second half, but the Trojans battled back then as well. Worthington trailed at halftime, 25-21.

Tarren Spartz had 15 points and eight rebounds for WHS. Madison Beckmann, back in action after a couple of missed games due to injury, had 12 points – all on 3s – as well as 11 rebounds.

Aubrea Kor led the Arrows offensively with 17 points and Jadyn Kor had 14. Pipestone Area is 11-7 on the season; the Trojans are 4-16.


In boys hockey, Marshall scored five goals in the first period and three each in the second and third to top the visiting Trojans, 11-0. Ten different players scored for the Tigers as they dropped Worthington to 3-15 on the season. Marshall is 11-12.
