Decatur Girls Wrap Regular Season With Win

BERLIN- Stephen Decatur’s girls’ varsity soccer team closed out the regular season with a resounding 9-0 win at home last Thursday.

It was an up-and-down regular season for the Seahawks, who lost more games than they won, but they had more than a few bright spots along the way. One of those bright spots came last Thursday with a 9-0 rout of Wicomico at home.

The Decatur girls beat Wicomico, 11-0, back on September 16. Other wins for the Seahawks came against Mardela and county rival Snow Hill. With the win over Wicomico in the regular season finale, the Decatur girls finished with a 4-8 record.

When the state playoff brackets were released on Monday, the Decatur girls were seeded sixth in the 2A-South Section II bracket and will face Chesapeake of Anne Arundel County in the opener. Looming on the opposite side of the Section II bracket is Bayside South rival Bennett. Decatur lost to Bennett, 1-0, back on October 4.
