(Oct. 29, 2021) The Worcester Prep girls’ soccer team advanced to the Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference championship with a 2-0 win over the Salisbury School Dragons in the semifinal round on Tuesday in Berlin.

It may not have been the Lady Mallards’ best performance, but the squad was able to pull out the victory.

“It was just an off game, but it wasn’t for lack of trying. We just weren’t playing our game. We labeled it the game of missed opportunities,” said Prep Coach Carol Hartnett. “I felt like our feet never hit the ground. We were too hyped up for this game … Good teams can win when things are not going well and we did. We punched our ticket to the tournament championship.”

Seniors Natalie Brushmiller and Myranda Beebe scored goals for the Mallards in the first half.

Freshman goalie Abigail Ament recorded seven saves, including a key stop with seven minutes left in the match.

Worcester was slated to battle the Salisbury Christian Jaguars yesterday, Thursday, for the ESIAC championship title. It was their third matchup this season.

The Mallards won, 1-0, when the teams went head-to-head on Sept. 10 in Berlin. The Jaguars came out on top, 3-2, on Sept. 29 in Salisbury.
