Decatur Boys’ Lax Upset in OT

The Seahawks played well all year and earned a number-two
seed in the Class 3A-2A East bracket and a first round bye. However, their
appearance in the state tournament was short-lived with an 11-10 overtime loss
to Northeast at home last Saturday. After the two teams were tied at 10-10 at
the end of regulation, Northeast’s Donovan Lange scored a goal just 44 seconds
into the overtime period to end the game and the season for the Seahawks.

The two teams were tied at 2-2 at the end of the first
quarter and Northeast took a 4-2 lead into halftime. The Seahawks outscored the
Indians, 5-4, in the third quarter to cut the lead to 8-7 going into the
fourth. Again, Decatur outscored Northeast three goals to two in the final
period to tie the game at 10-10 at the end of regulation, but Northeast grabbed
the early goal in overtime to pull off the upset.

West led all Decatur scorers with three goals, while Bruce Howe, Paul Kramer

and Nick Hogan each scored two goals and Sean McGarry added a single tally.BERLIN- The Stephen Decatur’s boys’ varsity lacrosse
