Mallards Sweep Three, Stay On Roll

BERLIN- Worcester Prep’s boys’ varsity lacrosse team stayed on a big roll this week with a sweep of three games including a 12-6 win over Gunston last Saturday which was essentially the Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference (ESIAC) championship.

After falling to Calverton, 9-5, back on April 18, the Worcester boys have swept three games in impressive fashion. During the recent run of success, the Mallards have outscored their three opponents by a combined 51-11. The streak began with a 16-2 rout of the Tome School in Delaware last Wednesday.

On Saturday, Worcester beat Gunston, 12-6, on Senior Day and what was also the ESIAC championship game. Worcester competes in both the ESIAC and the Maryland Independent Lacrosse League (MILL). Back in action on Monday, the Mallards routed Salisbury School, 23-3.

With the three wins, Worcester’s record now stands at 8-4. The Mallards face Delmar at home on Saturday and will get a rematch with Calverton on May 10 in the MILL championship game. Also still on the schedule is a May 13 date with Woodbridge.
