(March 30, 2018) The Worcester Prep boys’ lacrosse team opened its season on the road Tuesday with a 15-4 victory over the Gunston Day Herons in Centreville.

“We played very well after 10 days off [for spring break],” said Prep Coach Kevin Gates. “I was happy with the first game.”

The Mallards led 2-1 at the end of the first quarter and 10-1 at halftime.

“We weren’t finishing in the first quarter. In the second quarter we started putting away our shots,” Gates said.

Worcester scored twice in the third quarter to pull ahead 13-1.

Senior captain Tucker Brown tallied four goals and four assists. Senior captain Sam Cantello chipped in with three goals and three assists.

Junior Alec Dembeck added two goals and an assist. Junior Owen Tunis had two assists.

Senior captain Jack Fager played in goal during the first half and recorded two saves. Freshman Hunter Gentry took over for the second half and stopped six shots.

Winning face-offs was key for Worcester. Sophomore Sam Tinkler won 10 of 15 and freshman John Arrington was 4-for-8.

“Defensively, we played well,” Gates said. “We knew they were going to play zone on us. We moved the ball well on offense. We had 10 assisted goals out of 15.”

Worcester will host Caesar Rodney on Wednesday at 4 p.m. in Berlin.
