(Jan. 19, 2018) The Worcester Prep boys’ basketball team held off the Delmar Wildcats to win Monday’s game in Berlin, 50-49.

“I thought we probably made it harder than it really should have been,” Prep Coach Keith Geiger said. “I don’t think we rebounded very well, but they had some really tough guys – I think there was some football players in there, so they’re strong kids and we had a little bit of trouble securing the rebounds.

“We grinded one out,” he added. “We got the win. It wasn’t pretty, but we did it.”

Delmar outscored Worcester 13-12 in the first quarter. At halftime, the Mallards led 28-21. After three quarters, the Berlin squad was ahead 39-32.

Baskets were traded during the fourth quarter, but the Mallards held on for the victory.

Junior Colin Miller had 13 points, four steals and four assists.

“I thought Colin Miller had a good game, probably his best game this year,” Geiger said. “He was shooting the ball with confidence. That was good to see.”

Senior captain Tucker Brown contributed 13 points and had six rebounds, five assists and two steals. Junior Cooper Richins added 12 points.

“We kind of stumbled our way through it. We made some mistakes at the end of the game, but we were able to stick with it and finish,” Geiger said. “It’s a good learning experience for me to see things I can probably do better, practicing those end-of-the-game situations and things we can do better toward the end of the game to not get so flustered and start turning the ball over.”

The Salisbury Christian Jaguars will come to Berlin tonight, Friday, to play Worcester at 7 p.m.
