(Sept. 13, 2013) Worcester Prep sophomore Wyatt Richins scored the first goal for the boys’ soccer team four minutes into last Friday’s game against the Salisbury School Dragons. The Mallards won the match 8-1.
“We played pretty well. Our combination play was excellent,” said Prep Coach Terry Underkoffler. “We moved the ball around and that was key. We were using all 10 field players in possession and we were constantly in motion.”
Captain J.B. Loomis, Jack Marshall and Noah Conboy, all seniors, and freshman Aria ZiaShakeri also scored in the first half to give Worcester a 5-0 lead.
Sophomore Elio Telo netted a shot less than two minutes into the second half to boost the Mallards’ lead to six. Senior captain Ryan Nally made it 7-0 before Salisbury scored its only goal of the game. Thomas Buas, a senior, logged the final goal for Worcester with about four and a half minutes remaining in the game.
“We had eight goal scorers so I was happy with that,” Underkoffler said. “It was a total team effort.”
Prep sophomore goalie Charlie Pritchard stopped four Salisbury shots.
The Mallards will host the Delmar Wildcats at 4 p.m. today, Friday.
The Delmarva Christian Royals are scheduled to come to Berlin on Monday for a 4 p.m. match with Worcester.
