Trojans make it three shutouts this week in boys soccer

The Worthington Trojans boys soccer team led 4-0 at the half and went on to a 5-0 win Saturday at Mankato East.


The win wrapped up a week during which the Trojans went 3-0 and outscored their opponents 17-0. Worthington, ranked ninth in the most recent state Class AA poll, is now 12-2 and will play its final two matches of the regular season this week. WHS will compete at New Ulm on Tuesday night.


In girls soccer, meanwhile, the Trojans were defeated 7-0 in a match at Jordan. Worthington also has two games left in its regular season and will play host to New Ulm on Tuesday evening.

The Marshall Tigers dominated Worthington High School’s homecoming football game Friday night as they scored 30 straight points in the second quarter and went on to a 68-6 rout of the Trojans.


Worthington’s Jacari Swinea’s 29-yard touchdown run 30 seconds into the second quarter had cut Marshall’s lead to 14-6, but Mason Eickhoff promptly returned the ensuing kickoff 71 yards for a TD. The Tigers went on to add two touchdowns, a safety and another TD before the quarter was out for 44-6 advantage at halftime. Marshall added three more touchdowns and field goal in the third quarter before the Tigers proceeded to consume most of the running clock in the fourth.


The Tigers accumulated 302 yards on offense, while the Trojans had just 63. While Swinea had the lone WHS touchdown in the game, he also contributed an interception on defense. Chase Byrne led the team in total tackles with seven; Ryan Dorcey had five and Brandon Bosma four.


The Trojans will host Albert Lea this coming Friday in a battle of 0-5 teams.
