In the season finale, the Mallards overcame an early deficit to beat Holly Grove, 41-30. The game was tied at 19 at the half, but Worcester pulled ahead, 30-25, at the end of the third quarter. Worcester then pulled away for the 41-30 win to close out the season, 5-1. Lily Baeurle led Worcester with 17 points in the season finale, while C.C. Lizas finished with 15.
