(Oct. 12, 2018) The Worcester Prep field hockey team netted nine goals and held the St. Thomas More Ravens scoreless on Wednesday in Magnolia, Delaware.
“They played well and almost everyone played a different position, so they got some extra practice,” Prep Coach Katie Oxenreider said.
The Lady Mallards led 6-0 in the first half. Goals were scored by senior captain Hailee Arrington (two), senior Dana Anderson, junior captain Abbi Nechay, junior Hana Miller and sophomore Claire Williams.
Miller tallied two goals in the second half and Nechay had one.
“They looked good and I’m glad they came out hungry to score,” Oxenreider said.
Junior goalie Aly Matha stopped three St. Thomas More shots.
Worcester will host the Delmarva Christian Royals today, Friday, at 4:30 p.m. The senior Mallards will be recognized before the game.
The final regular-season game is Monday against the Gunston Day Herons at 4 p.m. in Centreville.
The Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference tournament will begin the following week.
“We needed to stay positive and keep moving forward to do well in playoffs,” Oxenreider said.
