Sabres Down Mallards 11-9 In 2nd Meeting

BERLIN- Worcester Prep’s girls’ varsity lacrosse team fell to old rival Saints Peter and Paul, 11-9, in tight one on the road this week.

The Mallards started the season with four consecutive wins, but have now lost two of three to some of the toughest teams on their schedule. Included in the four-game winning streak to start the season was a 17-8 win over Saints Peter and Paul back on March 24.

It’s always special when Worcester faces Saints Peter and Paul in any sport, but girls’ varsity lacrosse has produced perhaps the most intense rivalry in recent years. The Mallards beat the Sabres, 17-8, in the first meeting and Saints Peter and Paul returned the favor on Tuesday with an 11-9 win over Worcester in Easton. The two teams will likely meet again in the third part of an annual trilogy somewhere along the way in the Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference playoffs or more likely the conference championship game.
