(Sept. 22, 2017) The Worcester Prep field hockey team topped the Delmarva Christian Royals, 7-0, on Monday in Berlin.

“I think they played well. We did a good job of forcing corners and finishing our shots,” Prep Coach Katie Oxenreider said. “They had a great second effort to win the ball back. We needed a good win with some goals after a couple tough losses back-to-back. [vs. Bennett and Sussex Tech].”

Freshman Tenley Pelot put Worcester on the board. Junior captain Hailee Arrington assisted both junior Maya Natesen’s and sophomore captain Abbi Nechay’s goals. At halftime, the Lady Mallards led 3-0.

Pelot assisted sophomore Rylie Carey’s second-half goal. Arrington scored the next three goals to increase Worcester’s advantage to 7-0.

Sophomore goalie Aly Matha recorded four saves.

Worcester will host the Saints Peter & Paul Sabres today, Friday, at 4 p.m. The Mallards will then travel to Centreville to compete against the Gunston Day Herons on Monday at 4 p.m.
