Lady Mallards earn 1-0 win over conference rival, Sabres

(Sept. 26, 2014) Berlin was hit with with a brief rain storm last Friday as the Worcester Prep girls’ soccer team was on its way out of the school for warm-ups.

Once the sky cleared, the team took the field for a shortened warm-up before the Lady Mallards’ anticipated match against Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference rivals, the Sts. Peter & Paul Sabres.

“It took them a few minutes to get into the game because of the rain,” said Prep Coach Carol Hartnett. “They settled in nicely.”

Sophomore Madison Bescak netted a shot midway into the first half and the lone goal was enough to win the game.

“Madison dribbled down the sideline and put it far post. It was picture perfect,” Hartnett said.

The Mallards let up a bit in the last five minutes of the game and their play was a little sloppy, Hartnett said, but overall, she was pleased with what she saw on the field.

“It was a physical game and they didn’t let it get to them. They were pretty focused,” Hartnett said. “We’re a relatively young team and they work well together. We did control most of the game. [Junior goalie] Grace [Tunis] only had to make four saves, so that was good.”

Hartnett said sophomore Olivia Bescak did a good job of coordinating the defense. Players on the back line didn’t let the Sabres get any quality shots off.

Sts. Peter & Paul and Worcester will go head-to-head again on Thursday, Oct. 2, on the Sabres field in Easton at 4 p.m.

“We have to refocus and get ready to play on their field,” Hartnett said after the first match-up. “It’s a totally different game on their field.”

Worcester Prep sophomore Madison Bescak turns to shoot on goal during last Friday’s contest against Sts. Peter & Paul in Berlin. Bescak scored about 20 minutes into the game and the Mallards held on to win, 1-0.
