Worcester Girls Notch First Win Of Season

BERLIN- Worcester Prep’s girls’ varsity lacrosse team got in the win column this week with a 14-11 win over Bennett on the road in a non-conference game.

The Mallards opened the season with a 15-8 loss to neighborhood rival Stephen Decatur last Wednesday. On Friday, the Worcester girls traveled to Cape Henlopen and lost to the Vikings, 19-6. Worcester trailed 12-4 at the half and never really made any significant inroads on the Vikings’ big early lead.

Worcester was led by Carly Hoffman with two goals, along with single goals by Delaney Abercrombie, Myranda Beebe, Madison Van Orden and Abby Reynolds. Cape took 46 shots in the game and the Worcester keepers combined for 27 saves. Next up for the Mallards is a home game against old rival Saints Peter and Paul on Friday.
