(May 8, 2015) The Worcester Prep girls’ lacrosse team shut out the Salisbury School Dragons 19-0 on Wednesday in Berlin to advance to the Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference championship match, today, Friday.
“We played well and really worked on cleaning up our passing and feeding,” Prep Coach Leigh Anne Flounlacker said.
The Lady Mallards scored 14 goals in the first half. Julie Talbert led the team with four goals. The sophomore made her debut on the field after being in a protective cast for a majority of the season due to a wrist injury.
Captains Sophie Brennan, a senior, and junior Grace Tunis (three assists) contributed three goals each. Amy Lizas, a sophomore, added four assists and one goal.
Worcester will host Saints Peter & Paul Sabres today, Friday, at 5:30 p.m. for the ESIAC title. This is the third time the teams have met this year. The Mallards dominated the March 31 game, winning 15-3. They narrowly topped the Sabres 10-9 on April 17.
“We definitely know it’s not going to be an easy feat to win for a third time, especially since we know how close it was the second time we played them,” Flounlacker said. “We are ready though. The girls know if we stay composed and play our game we’ll have a great chance of winning.”
