Seahawks Outlast Indians, Improve To 2-0

BERLIN- Stephen Decatur’s varsity football team outlasted Wicomico, 21-13, last weekend in a rain-soaked contest to improve to 2-0 on the young season, matching their total win output from last year in just the second week.

The rejuvenated Seahawks traveled to Wicomico last Saturday to take on the Indians in a game that featured an extended halftime because of severe thunderstorms and a threat of a tornado. In the end, it was Decatur that stormed pass Wicomico, 21-13, to improve to 2-0 on the season. The Seahawks beat Bohemia Manor last week in the season opener, 21-7.

Last year, Decatur went 2-7 during a season forgettable for a lot of reasons. Despite the record, the Seahawks were not as bad as the final win tally suggested, but found ways to lose tight games or fail to hold late leads. Thus far this season, Decatur has shown a propensity to finish off opponents, which bodes well for a better outcome although there is a lot of season left to play.

Last week against Wicomico, Decatur scored on a four-yard touchdown run by Dryden Brous at the start of the second quarter to take a 7-0 lead. The Seahawks led 7-0 at the half, which was extended by the severe thunderstorms and the threat of a tornado in the area. When play resumed, it was Brous again scoring on an 11-yard touchdown run to extend the Decatur lead to 14-0.

Wicomico scored twice to cut the lead to 14-13, but the Seahawks held a one-point margin when the Indians missed an extra point. Brous sealed the game for Decatur with a 22-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to push the lead to 21-13. Brous scored all three touchdowns for the Seahawks in the win and now has four on the season after two games. Next up for Decatur is Easton at home on Friday.
