(Oct. 11, 2019) After two 10-minute overtime periods, the boys’ soccer game on Tuesday in Berlin between Worcester Prep and the Salisbury School Dragons ended in a 2-2 tie.
“I think we played well. We continue to have trouble finishing at the net, but the boys continue to play hard and never gave up,” Prep Coach Jon Adkins said. “Offense is getting better shots, now we need to finish. It was a great game and atmosphere.”
Senior Max Taylor gave the Mallards a 1-0 lead right before the halftime break. Salisbury tied it up about seven minutes into the second half.
Taylor netted his second goal with about 17 minutes remaining in the match. The Dragons evened the score with 7:30 on the clock.
Both teams had some opportunities in the overtime periods, but neither could capitalize.
Senior Spencer Paquette recorded six saves in goal for Worcester.
“We have improved. Passing, decision making, all have improved,” Adkins said. “They are playing much better as a team. They are a hard-working group who really care about being a good team. We are in the playoff hunt, which is where you want to be.”
Worcester will travel to Salisbury to play the Salisbury Christian Jaguars today, Friday, at 4 p.m. The Mallards will host the Delmar Wildcats on Saturday at 1 p.m. for their homecoming game.
