(March 30, 2018) The Worcester Prep girls’ lacrosse team won its season opener on the road, 15-3, over the Gunston Day Herons on Tuesday in Centreville.

“We were working to fix some mistakes [made during the March 14 scrimmage against Queen Anne’s] and we achieved that,” said Prep Coach Brooke Hahn. “We had strong ball movement on attack and smooth transitions through the midfield. Defense was communicating really well.”

One of the biggest things the Mallards needed to improve upon after the Queen Anne’s scrimmage was ground balls.

“We won a lot of the 50/50 balls [during the Gunston game],” she said.

The Mallards led 10-2 at halftime on Tuesday. Nine players scored goals for Worcester.

Senior Cameron Langeler led the Mallards with three goals. Sophomore Madison VanOrden, juniors Delaney Abercrombie, a team captain, and Gracie Gardner, and senior Marissa Grosso scored two goals apiece.

Senior captain Reese Gittelman and sophomores Abbi Nechay, Quinn McColgan and Carly Hoffman, a team captain, netted one goal each.

Abercrombie, Nechay and Gittelman each had an assist.

Hoffman won six draws and Abercrombie controlled five. They each picked up three ground balls apiece.

Senior captain Sophia Bandorick stopped six Gunston shots in goal for Worcester.

Despite having nine days off from playing because of spring break, and only one practice before Tuesday’s game, Hahn said the Mallards looked confident on the field.

The Mallards will host the Salisbury School Dragons on Wednesday at 4 p.m. in Berlin.
