Two Dramatic Wins For Decatur Softball

BERLIN- Stephen Decatur’s varsity softball certainly had a flair for the dramatic this week, winning two games in their very last at-bat to improve to 13-3 overall and remain very much in the thick of the Bayside South race.

The Seahawks have now won six straight games, but the last two this week were certainly the most dramatic. On Monday, Decatur faced Bayside North power Kent Island at home and trailed 8-5 in the last inning. However, six straight Seahawks reached base in the final frame, culminating with a walk-off single by Lexi Black to complete the 9-8 comeback win.

On Tuesday, the Seahawks faced Bennett in a crucial Bayside South game and trailed the Clippers, 2-1, late. Decatur scored a single run in the sixth inning to tie the game and scored a walk-off run in the bottom of the seventh to complete the 3-2 come-from-behind win. With the pair of walk-off wins, the Seahawks improved to 13-3 on the season.
