(Oct. 3, 2014) The Worcester Prep field hockey team scored back-to-back wins this week against two Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference opponents.
On Tuesday, the Lady Mallards shut out the Delmarva Christian Royals, 7-0.
Sophomore Eva Parks scored one goal and freshman Mia Meacci netted two in the first half.
Junior Isabel Carulli tallied a goal four minutes into the second half. She logged a second goal two minutes later.
Senior captain Jordie Loomis scored Worcester’s sixth goal and sophomore Ava Schwartz recorded the team’s seventh point.
Freshman goalie Grace Nichols didn’t see much action. She made one save.
All six of the freshmen played a majority of the game.
“It was a good experience for them to play a full varsity game,” said Prep Coach Jenny Frostrom.
The next day, the Mallards went to Easton to face their ESIAC foe, the Sts. Peter & Paul Sabres.
Sophomore Regan Lingo and junior Hanna Nechay provided the Prep squad with a 2-0 first-half lead.
The Sabres scored once, and at the break, Worcester held a 2-1 advantage.
Nechay capitalized off a senior captain Caroline Lindsay pass to boost the Mallards’ lead to two goals in the second half.
“The played outstanding. We were much more prepared than the last time we played them,” Frostrom said. “We were able to execute more scoring opportunities. We were much more aggressive this time.”
Worcester and Sts. Peter & Paul met in Berlin on Sept. 19. Lindsay scored the only goal of the game in overtime.
For the second match-up, Frostrom changed the line-up around and put some players in different positions.
Sophomore Leigh Lingo, a forward, did a fantastic job in the midfield, Frostrom said. Senior captain Natalie Twilley helped out in the defensive end, moving from the midfield.
Carolyn Dorey, a senior, had a outstanding performance with three defensive saves. Goalie Stormy McGuiness stopped seven Sabres’ shots.
Frostrom said Carulli and Loomis played a phenomenal game.
“The girls were very focused,” Frostrom said. “They went out and did their job. I’m really proud of them.”
The Mallards will host the Indian River Indians today, Friday, at 4 p.m.
