(Oct. 4, 2013) The Worcester Prep field hockey team earned a 10-0 shutout over the Gunston Day Herons last Friday in Berlin, and a few days later, the Lady Mallards held the Delmarva Christian Royals scoreless and netted eight goals.
The Herons took a trip to Berlin to play the Mallards on Sept. 27.
Prep senior captain Sarah Arrington led the charge in the first half, scoring five goals. Senior Alison Greer assisted two of her goals. Senior captain Meg Lingo and senior Hannah Esham each had an assist.
Esham and junior Caroline Lindsay both netted shots and Worcester went into halftime with a 7-0 advantage.
Lingo tallied two goals in the second half and Greer had one.
Senior goalie Maddie Pilchard stopped three Gunston Day shots.
“Midfielders Jordie Loomis, Natalie Twilley and Isabel Carulli played awesome and constantly fed the forward line as well as giving support to the backs. Maddy Stearns, Libby Truitt and Carolyn Dorey held Gunston scoreless,” said Prep Coach Jenny Frostrom. “We had great passes and carries down the field. Our offense worked well together inside the circle as well.”
Worcester traveled to Georgetown, Del. to face the Delmarva Christian Royals Monday and came home with an 8-0 victory.
Lingo scored twice in the first half and sophomore Hanna Nechay capitalized on her opportunity to put the Mallards on top 3-0 at halftime.
Loomis logged two second-half goals and Lingo, Arrington and freshman Eva Parks netted one apiece.
Freshman goalie Margaret McGuiness made two saves.
“We played mostly JV (players) the entire game. We were able to have only a few varsity in to fill spots,” Frostrom said. This allows the younger players to gain varsity game experience. “I’ve got to give big props to Delmarva Christian’s defense and goalie. We had over 32 shots on goal and 19 corners. They really fought hard…”
The Mallards head to Easton today, Friday, to battle their Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference rivals, the Sts. Peter & Paul Sabres.
When the teams went head-to-head on Sept. 20 in Berlin, Worcester won 3-1.
