(May 4, 2018) The Worcester Prep girls’ lacrosse team picked up two victories on the road this week.

On Monday, the Lady Mallards outscored the Indian River Indians, 15-3, in Dagsboro, Delaware.

“I was really proud of the goals they had. Twelve of the 15 were assisted,” Prep Coach Brooke Hahn said. “The girls cleaned things up and worked well in the midfield.”

Worcester led 11-1 at halftime. Senior Cameron Langeler scored three goals for Worcester and had an assist. Senior Marissa Grosso and junior captain Delaney Abercrombie had two goals and three assists each.

Sophomore captain Carly Hoffman tallied two goals. She also won six draws.

Senior captain Sophia Bandorick made one save in the goal for Worcester. Junior Clare DeMallie recorded three saves.

“The defense did well sliding, the midfielders controlled the ball really well and got a lot of draw controls, and our attackers were able to execute some new plays,” Hahn said.

On Wednesday, the Mallards traveled to Easton to take on their Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference rival, the Saints Peter & Paul Sabres.

After a tight battle early, Worcester pulled ahead and kept rolling onto a 13-7 win.

“It was one and one for a long time, then we just felt the momentum swing and ran with it,” Hahn said. The Prep squad only held a 5-4 advantage at halftime. “Everyone stepped up and had a fantastic game.”

Hoffman netted five goals and won six draws. Abercrombie chipped in with four goals and two assists. Grosso tallied two goals and an assist. Bandorick stopped eight Sabres’ shots.

“Defense stepped up and didn’t let them in the eight, our midfielders worked really hard even with the heat, attack moved the ball really well and capitalized on big opportunities,” Hahn said. “They all showed a lot of heart and we could tell they wanted it, especially since it means the championship will be on our home turf next week.”

Worcester’s final game of the regular season is against the Sussex Tech Ravens at 4 p.m. Monday in Berlin. The Mallards will host the ESIAC semis Wednesday.
