Worcester’s Lady Mallards fight hard, but lose to Cougars, 2-1

(Sept. 13, 2013) The Worcester Prep girls’ soccer team got off to a quick start when sophomore Julia D’Antonio scored off a pass from senior captain Lilly DiNardo about 45 seconds into last Friday’s season opener against Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Cougars.

The visiting Cougars evened the score off a free kick eight minutes later.

The teams went into the halftime break tied 1-1.

Prep Coach Carol Hartnett said the Lady Mallards pressed forward more in the second half and took a number of shots, but they were unsuccessful at getting the ball past the Cougars’ keeper. Mt. Carmel netted a shot with a little over two minutes left to play and held on for a 2-1 victory.

“I thought we played well. Our momentum and our effort the entire game was phenomenal,” Hartnett said. “Mt. Carmel is such a good team. We’re coming off a strong preseason–our most rigorous preseason–and this was a good game to have at the start of the season.”

The Mallards next competition is Friday, Sept. 20.

The Prep squad will head to Easton to take on its Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference rivals, the Sts. Peter & Paul Sabres.
