(Dec. 14, 2018) The Worcester Prep boys’ basketball team held the Gunston Day Herons to 10 points – only allowing one in the second half – while the offense netted 51 on Tuesday in Berlin.
“We played much better defensively in the second half,” Prep Coach John Moeser said. “We’re still going through growing pains. We play well for stretches … we haven’t played a complete game yet.
“We’re really up and down,” he continued. “We need to come out and play at the same level each game.”
The Mallards led 7-4 at the end of the first quarter. By halftime, the home team had pulled ahead 20-9. Worcester outscored Gunston 23-0 in third quarter.
Senior Michael Curtis led Worcester with 18 points. Senior captain Colin Miller chipped in with 12 points and sophomore Mason Brown scored 11.
Worcester will battle the Delmarva Christian Royals on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in Georgetown, Delaware. When the two teams met in Berlin on Dec. 5, Delmarva Christian won 48-33.
“Hopefully we play a little better than we did last week,” Moeser said. “We’ve had some trouble getting started [in the first quarter]. We need to be in it right from the start. We need to play for 32 minutes.”
The Mallards’ final game before winter break is Monday at 6:30 p.m. against the Holly Grove Eagles in Berlin.
