(Dec. 13, 2019) The Worcester Prep girls’ basketball team scored 48 points and held the Saints Peter and Paul Sabres to eight during Wednesday’s game in Berlin.
“They played really well. They’re a great group of young ladies, they’re very competitive and eager to win, and they really enjoy playing together,” said Prep Coach Brian McDermott.
The Lady Mallards outscored the Sabres 15-0 in the first quarter. At halftime, they led 28-6.
After three quarters, the Prep squad was ahead 44-6.
“Saints Peter and Paul did a nice job running a 1-3-1 defense and 1-3-1 half-court and what we decided to do was basically work on our opportunities to get better in those areas because we hadn’t faced them yet and both Delmarva Christian and couple other schools are going to play the same defense against us,” McDermott said. “These girls are pretty smart and they can pick it up pretty quick. I have a couple returners that are doing really well and then some of the younger ones need more experience, that’s why we played a lot of them tonight.”
Sophomore Lily Baeurle led Worcester with 14 points. Junior CC Lizas chipped in with 11 points. Senior captain Carly Hoffman scored seven points.
Worcester, now 4-0, will play the Gunston Day Herons, today, Friday, in Centreville, at 4 p.m.
On Monday, the Mallards will take a trip to Georgetown, Delaware, to compete against the Delmarva Christian Royals at 5:30 p.m.
“I’m really fortunate. They want to get better every day and every day we have practice that’s all they do,” McDermott said.
