(Jan. 16, 2015) The Worcester Prep girls’ basketball team scored 55 points and limited the Chincoteague Ponies to just 10 during Monday night’s game in Virginia.
“The girls played well. Our main goal was to concentrate on our shots and once we did that we start scoring a lot better,” Prep Coach Simona Holland said after the match. “They did a great job on defense; they had a lot of steals and were able to go for fast breaks and make their layups.”
The Lady Mallards netted 19 points in the opening quarter and held the Ponies scoreless.
At the halftime break, the visiting Prep squad led 39-2. After three quarters, Worcester had a 49-2 advantage.
Senior captain Sophie Brennan contributed with 16 points. Grace Tunis, a junior, chipped in with 12 points and sophomore Regan Lingo logged seven points.
“It was hard getting back from a two-week break during holidays, but we are starting to get back in shape and play our game and I’m happy with their performance at this point in the season,” Holland said. “We still have a lot of work to do and we need to get better every day.”
The Mallards will host the Gunston Day Herons today, at 4 p.m.
When the two teams met on Dec. 3, Worcester trounced Gunston, 80-23.
