‘Determined’ Lady Mallards squad shut out Herons and Yellow Jackets

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

Prep Coach Jenny Frostrom Prep Coach Jenny Frostrom (Oct. 5, 2012) Worcester Prep field hockey Coach Jenny Frostrom is quite pleased with her squad’s progress this season.

“The team is working very well together and is determined to have a successful season,” Frostrom said. “So far, they are on track to have a great one. We must keep the momentum.”

Last Friday in Centreville, the Lady Mallards edged out the Gunston Day Herons, 2-0.

Junior Hannah Esham scored off a pass from Meg Lingo in the first half. Seconds before the halftime break, Lingo, a junior, went one-on-one with the Gunston goalie and scored to put Worcester on top 2-0.

Claire Brown, the team’s lone senior, blocked a stroke in the first half. Junior Maddy Pilchard recorded a save in the second half.

“We dominated the game, keeping the ball on our end most of the game,” Frostrom said. “We had many scoring opportunities, including 12 corners, but both goals were scored on fast breaks.

“Gunston played a tight defense,” she said. “We played a great passing game and communicated well.”

On Monday, the Mallards traveled to Eastville, Va., for a game against the Northampton Yellow Jackets. Lingo tallied the only goal in Worcester’s 1-0 victory.

“We had many scoring opportunities, with numerous corners and shots block by Northampton’s defense,” Frostrom said. “Meg Lingo was an outstanding player throughout the game. She had many carries down the field and had the most shots on goal.” Frostrom said sophomore Jordie Loomis and junior Sarah Arrington also had excellent drives on goal.

“Our entire offensive line fought hard inside the circle, creating beautiful give and goes, but we could not get past Northampton defense,” the coach said.

Brown stopped three Yellow Jackets’ shots.

The Mallards will take a trip to Westover today, Friday, to play the Holly Grove Eagles.
