(Sept. 27, 2013) The Worcester Prep field hockey team edged out the Sts. Peter & Paul Sabres 3-2 last October to win the program’s first ever Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference title.
Lady Mallards’ Coach Jenny Frostrom said the match-up against the Sabres this season was the conference opponent she was most concerned about as the squad is their toughest competition.
The two teams went head-to-head last Friday in Berlin and Worcester came out on top 3-1. Frostrom said the win was “huge” for the Prep team.
Senior captain Meg Lingo netted the Mallards’ first goal about five minutes into the contest. She scored a second goal 10 minutes later. Sarah Arrington, a senior captain, assisted both goals.
Sts. Peter & Paul tallied a goal in the first half to trail by one at halftime.
Arrington capitalized, knocking in a Lingo cross to give Worcester a two-goal cushion with 15:33 left in the game.
Frostrom was pleased with her players’ performance. Although senior goalie Maddie Pilchard didn’t see much action–she made two saves–Frostrom said she did a good job in the goal.
Junior Natalie Twilley and sophomore Isabel Carulli played extremely well in the midfield, Frostrom said.
Seniors Maddy Stearns and Libby Truitt and junior Carolyn Dorey “played amazing defense with excellent carries and sends to the forward line,” Frostrom said.
“The entire offensive line plays so well to together. Their timing, passes and communication have led to our success,” she said.
Worcester will play the Gunston Day Herons today, Friday, at 4 p.m. in Berlin.
