Worcester Girls Fall to Sabres, 29-21

BERLIN- Despite falling to old rival Saints Peter and Paul last Thursday, the Worcester Prep girls’ varsity basketball team has much to build on after a solid first half of the season during which they went 5-2.
The Mallards lost to the Sabres, 29-21, last Thursday in the last game before the holiday break, but the loss did little to tarnish what was otherwise a remarkable start to the 2013-2014 season. The Mallards opened the season with a 56-2 win over Gunston, followed by a narrow 28-27 defeat to Salisbury Christian.
After that, the Worcester girls reeled off four straight wins, beating Greenwood 60-8, Greenwood again, 57-20, Holly Grove, 50-8, and Chincoteague, 30-3. The Mallards’ average margin of victory during the four-game streak was 50-8.
The loss to the Sabres last Thursday brought Worcester back down to earth somewhat after such a hot streak, but the Mallards have much to build on going into the second half. They will return to action after the holiday break with a home game against Salisbury School on January 8.
