(Oct. 11, 2013) The Worcester Prep field hockey team played its best game of the season last Friday, according to Coach Jenny Frostrom, when the Lady Mallards battled their Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference rivals, the Sts. Peter & Paul Sabres in Easton.
“This was a great and a sweet victory for WPS. I don’t know why, but the away Sts. Peter & Paul game is always tough for us,” Frostrom said after the 6-1 victory. “We played excellent hockey Friday. Everyone was focused and determined to give 100 percent, and they did.”
Senior captain Meg Lingo scored off a Hannah Esham pass to give Worcester a 1-0 lead. Junior Caroline Lindsay boosted the Mallards’ lead to two goals at the end of the first half.
Senior captain Sarah Arrington netted a shot in the opening minutes of the second half.
With about 24 minutes remaining in the game, Sts. Peter & Paul cut Worcester’s lead to two.
Senior Alison Greer assisted Lingo’s goal to increase the Mallards’ advantage to 4-1. Junior Jordie Loomis scored off a Lingo corner. Esham, a senior, tallied the Mallards’ final goal at the buzzer on a corner play.
Freshman goalie Margaret McGuiness stopped three Sabres shots.
The Mallards are undefeated with three games remaining in the regular season.
The Prep squad will travel to Centreville to play the Gunston Day Herons today, Friday.
