Trojans boys soccer to host Hutchinson on Tuesday night

The Worthington Trojans boys soccer team, which wrapped up its regular season last week with a 14-2 record while winning its fourth consecutive Big South Conference title, will host its quarterfinal Section 2AA match at 6 p.m. Tuesday when it takes on Hutchinson-Glencoe Silver Lake.

The Trojans are currently ranked seventh in the latest state AA poll. Should they win Tuesday, they’ll host the winner of Mound Westonka and Mankato West in a Thursday night semifinal match. WHS is seeking its third straight trip to the state tournament.

On the girls side, the Trojans – who ended their regular season with a 2-14 record following a 5-1 loss at Albert Lea on Saturday – will play their first-round sectional game at 6 p.m. Tuesday in St. Peter. The winner will take on either Mankato West or Marshall.


In college volleyball over the weekend, Minnesota West had a couple of road matches, blanking Anoka-Ramsey 3-0 and falling to Century College 3-1.

Game scores against Anoka-Ramsey were 25-12, 25-10, 25-15. Hattie DeVries led the way offensively with 13 kills, Ella Kamrud added nine kills and Ella Hesse had six kills. Kat Polzine contributed five kills and two ace serves, and Lexi Schreurs had four kills and 33 set assists along with 20-of-20 serving.

Against Century, the No. 6 ranked team in the nation, the Lady Jays were edged by scores of 25-21, 25-23, 18-25, 26-24. Hesse had 20 kills, 12 digs and an ace serve and DeVries chipped in with nine kills. Schreuers had four kills, 32 set assists and eight digs for Minnesota West, now 20-7 this season.


Jacari Swinea had 21 carries for 192 yards and scored three touchdowns on Friday night as the Trojans topped visiting Albert Lea 22-14 for their first football victory of the year.

Swinea had TDs on runs of five and 75 yards while also returning the game’s opening kickoff 89 yards for a score. He also picked off a pass on defense with just over a minute left in the fourth quarter to secure the win.

WHS rallied from a 14-6 halftime deficit. Chase Byrne’s blocked punt resulted in a safety with a minute left in the third quarter, and Swinea’s 5-yard scoring scamper immediately followed a 73-yard pass play from Tucker Brandner to Ryan Lais with a little more than eight minutes remaining in the fourth. Swinea had final TD run with 3:22 to go.

Ryan Dorcey led the Trojans with 10 total tackles; Brandner also had an interception. WHS will play at Fairmont next Friday.

The following day, they lost to Lakeview 2-1 and Medford 2-0 while beating West Lutheran 2-0. Over the weekend, Worthington’s Adddison Gerber set the all-time school assists record.
