SALISBURY- Stephen Decatur’s boys’ varsity basketball team got a split in its two games in the Governor’s Challenge Holiday Tournament in Salisbury last week, dropping its opener to Tallwood before rebounding with a win over Laurel of Delaware.
The Seahawks played in the boys’ varsity Bracket 1 and drew a tough assignment against Tallwood High School of Virginia Beach. Decatur trailed 10-4 after one quarter, but rallied and took a 16-14 lead into halftime. However, the Lions got their offense rolling in the second half and the Seahawks never really found their offensive rhythm and fell to Tallwood, 54-38.
In the consolation game the next day, Decatur beat Laurel High School of Delaware convincingly, 67-47. With the win, Decatur earned a split in its two games at the Governor’s Challenge and improved to 5-2 on the season.
The Seahawks were back in action on Thursday on the road against Bennett in a game played too late to be included in this edition. The Bennett game on Thursday was the first of three tough road games against Bayside South rivals. The Seahawks play Wicomico and Parkside on the road next week.
