Worcester Girls Win Two In Conference

BERLIN- Worcester Prep’s girls’ varsity lacrosse team rebounded quickly from a loss last week to St. Mary’s Ryken with a pair of resounding wins over Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference (ESIAC) rivals this week.

The Mallards had one four straight before last Thursday’s loss to St. Mary’s Ryken, 16-4. The Worcester girls then wasted no time starting a new winning streak with a pair of wins over ESIAC foes. Last Saturday on Senior Day, the Mallards routed Gunston, 18-6. The game was fairly close as Worcester led just 9-4 at the half.

However, the Mallards outscored the Herons, 9-2, in the second half to pull away for the 18-6 win. Back in action on Monday on the road against Salisbury School, the Worcester girls snuffed the Dragons, 16-3. In that game, the Mallards led 10-2 at the half and never looked back.

With the pair of wins, Worcester improved to 9-4 on the season. The Mallards play old rival Saints Peter and Paul on the road on Friday in the second game of its typical home and home series with the Sabres. Worcester beat Saints Peter and Paul, 22-2, at home back on April 12. Worcester closes out the regular season on the road next week against St. Thomas More before the ESIAC playoffs get underway.
