(April 5, 2019) The Worcester Prep boys’ lacrosse team scored victories over the James M. Bennett Clippers and MOT Charter School this week.
The Mallards traveled to Salisbury on Monday to compete against the Clippers.
Bennett netted two goals early, but Worcester answered to tie the score 2-2 at the end of the first quarter. The Prep team led 5-3 at halftime.
“Once we started scoring, I think we got our confidence back,” Worcester Coach John Moeser said. “It was definitely a confidence boosters once we saw the ball go in the goal.”
After three quarters, the Mallards were ahead 7-4 and went on the win 10-7.
Senior Owen Tunis and sophomore Graham McColgan scored three goals each. Senior captain Alec Dembeck chipped in with one goal and three assists.
Sophomores Brugh Moore, Mason Brown and John Arrington netted one goal apiece.
Sophomore goalie Hunter Gentry had several key saves for Worcester. He stopped 17 Bennett shots.
“The offense played much better. We were able to possess the ball, which gave us a chance to run our offense,” Moeser said. “Defense played well. Connor Carpenter, long stick midfielder, had a great game and close defense played well also.”
On Wednesday, Worcester took a trip to Middletown, Delaware, to play the MOT Charter School Mustangs.
The Berlin squad led 9-0 in the first half. The Mallards tacked on seven goals in the second half and allowed two.
“We did some good things. We moved the ball well, we won some face-offs and used the game as a chance to work on some things,” Moeser said.
Dembeck contributed two goals and three assists. Senior Jay Gosnear tallied four goals and Arrington scored three.
Gentry made one save in the first half. Freshman Bennett Tinkler recorded three saves in the second half.
Worcester will take a trip to Camden, Delaware, to battle the Caesar Rodney Riders, today, Friday, at 7 p.m. On Monday, the Mallards will host the Parkside Rams at 4 p.m.
