Worthington dominates New Ulm
NEW ULM — After starting the season 2-0 and outscoring their opponents 12-0 in that stretch, the New Ulm boys’ soccer team has hit a bit of a rough stretch.
New Ulm dropped its fifth straight game as Eagles lost 7-0 to Worthington in Big South Conference action.
The Trojans are one of the best teams the Eagles will face all year and they showed just why, scoring four times in the first half.
“They’re a tough team, however in the first half I don’t think we played all that well,” New Ulm coach Dave Dake said. “The second half however, I think we stepped up our game just a bit. They’re just a tough team.”
Jon Keoduangsy scored four goals for the Trojans, three of them in the second half.
Victor Alvarez scored Worthington’s first goal 4 minutes into the game and Eh Kyoo scored the team’s second goal midway through the first half. Keoduangsy added the third goal with seven minutes left and the Trojans added another goal before halftime.
Worthington’s team speed was evident all game and Keoduangsy broke away for three goals in the second half.
His first goal came with 15 minutes left and he scored another five minutes later to put the Trojans up 6-0. His fourth goal of the game came with 4:34 remaining.
New Ulm (2-5, 2-3 in the Big South) hasn’t scored a goal since the second game of the season and the Eagles are looking to snap their losing streak on Monday when they travel to Fairmont. Worthington improved to 8-0 overall and 4-0 in the Big South.
