BERLIN- After just missing with a late comeback against Easton last week, Decatur’s varsity softball team won a 17-13 slugfest with Crisfield at home on Monday.
The Seahawks have scuffled through much of the season, but have shown vast improvement over the last few weeks. Despite their overall 4-9 record, the Decatur girls have split their last four, beating county rival Pocomoke and Crisfield, while falling to North Caroline and Easton.
The loss to Easton last Saturday was a tough one. The Seahawks led 4-0 early, but saw the Warriors chip away to tie it at 4-4. A two-run homer in the fourth put the Warriors ahead, 6-4, and Easton added another run in the fifth to extend the lead to 7-4.
Decatur continued to battle, however. In the final inning, Lexi Black and Alex Richwalski each singled and came home on a hard grounder to short by Hillary Jarmain to cut the lead to 7-6. However, Easton closed out the Seahawks and held on for the 7-6 win. Back in action on Monday at home against Crisfield, the Seahawks won a slugfest with the Crabbers, 17-13, to improve to 4-9.
