Seahawks Sweep Two, Remain Unbeaten

BERLIN – Stephen Decatur’s boys’ varsity lacrosse team remained unbeaten this week with a pair of wins against tough Bayside North opponents including a 6-5 overtime thriller over Easton last Wednesay.

After opening the season with wins over Worcester Prep and Sussex Central, the Seahawks started a run against Bayside North opponents last week starting with a home game against Easton. Decatur fell behind early and trailed 4-1 at the half.

However, the Seahawks continued to chip away through the second half and tied the game at 5-5 with 10 seconds left. Decatur then won the game in dramatic fashion in overtime, 6-5.

Back in action on Friday, the Decatur boys routed Kent Coun-ty, 17-2, to improve to 4-0 on the season.

It won’t get any easier for the Seahawks, who face Queen Anne’s on the road on Friday, followed by a date with old nemesis Kent Island at home on Monday.
