Mallards Close Out First Half with 5-1 Mark

BERLIN- Worcester Prep’s boys varsity basketball team closed out the first part of the regular season in impressive fashion last week, beating host Chincoteague, 43-40, to finish with a 5-1 record going into the holiday break.
The Mallards edged always-tough Chincoteague, 43-40, last Wednesday in the last game before the holiday break. For Worcester, the win over the Ponies was the fourth in a row and fifth overall thus far this season against only one loss. The Mallards fell to Salisbury Christian, 51-49, back on December 3 for their only loss on the season.
Thus far, the Worcester boys have beaten Gunston, Greenwood Mennonite twice, Holly Grove and now Chincoteague. The Mallards will hit the ground running after the holidays with three games in three days including Chincoteague again on January 7, Salisbury School on January 8 and St. Thomas More on January 10.
