BERLIN- Stephen Decatur’s boys’ varsity basketball team bounced back from its first loss of the season last week with a thorough rout of visiting Washington at home on Tuesday.
The Seahawks opened the season with a pair of impressive wins including a tight 59-56 victory over Queen Anne’s followed by an 87-44 rout of county rival Pocomoke to get out to a 2-0 start. Last week, however, the Decatur boys dropped their first game of the season to host Crisfield in a key early Bayside South contest.
Decatur trailed just 20-16 at the half against Crisfield, but the Crabbers pulled away in the second half and cruised to the 73-44 win. Back in action at home on Tuesday, the Seahawks wasted no time jumping all over visiting Washington.
Decatur had everything going for them early on against the Jaguars. Three-point shots were falling, they were getting great penetration inside with their front court and, perhaps more importantly, they played stifling defense. Decatur led 38-15 at the half and never looked back on its way to an easy 78-39 win.
The Seahawks played Snow Hill on Thursday in another key early Bayside South game played too late to be included in this edition. During the holiday break, Decatur will compete in the Governor’s Challenge Holiday Tournament.
