(Dec. 12, 2014) The Worcester Prep girls’ basketball team scored 57 points and held the Chincoteague Ponies to just eight during Monday’s game in Berlin.
“I think they’re playing much better on offense. They started moving the ball pretty well and our shots are getting much better,” Prep Coach Simona Holland said. “I feel like this year it’s not just about defense, it’s our offense too. It’s much better than last year. As you can see, we score more points.”
The Lady Mallards put 20 points on the board in the first quarter, while the Ponies netted three. At halftime, the Prep squad led 29-5 and after three quarters, the home team boosted its advantage to 41-8.
Worcester tacked on 16 points in the fourth quarter and held Chincoteague scoreless.
Senior captain Sophie Brennan led the Mallards with 14 points and three rebounds. Grace Tunis, a junior, chipped in with 11 points and five rebounds. Senior captain Molly Soule and sophomore Karlie Southcomb contributed with eight points apiece.
“I think they look pretty good. I’m happy with their performance right now,” Holland said.
Worcester will travel to Greenwood, Del. today, Friday, to face the Greenwood Mennonite Flames at 5:30 p.m. On Monday, the Mallards will host the St. Thomas More Ravens at 4 p.m.
