Lady Mallards pick up pace after slow start, shut out Jaguars 8-0

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 Carol Hartnett Prep Coach Carol Hartnett(Sept. 28, 2012) The Worcester Prep girls’ soccer team got off to a slow start on Monday against the Salisbury Christian Jaguars, but the Lady Mallards picked up the pace and pulled out an 8-0 victory.

“There’s something about that field. They have trouble adjusting to it,” said Prep Coach Carol Hartnett. “It took us a while to get going, but then we just played really well.”

The visiting Mallards led 5-0 at halftime and tacked on three additional goals in the second half.

Seven players scored for Worcester. Senior Meredith Soulé led the offensive charge with two goals. Alex Bruder and Meredith Smith, both seniors, juniors Frankie Willing and Lilly DiNardo, sophomore Molly Soulé and freshman Julia D’Antonio each scored once.

“It was a great game with Salisbury Christian,” Hartnett said. “They were doing the things we’ve been learning all season in practice.”

Prep goalie Grace Tunis, a freshman, logged two saves before sophomore Mikalah Potvin took over midway into the second half. She stopped three Jaguars’ shots.

The St. Andrews Saints will come to Berlintoday,Friday,fora4p.m.game against Worcester.

“They’re a talented team. They’re always strong,” Hartnett said. “Every girl just needs to do her job and we’ll be fine. The girls should respect them, but not fear them.”
