    worsted = defeated

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to give me a leg up with the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    In fact, it was a little battle between the young lady and the old one, and the latter was worsted.

    worsted = defeated

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
