BERLIN- The afterglow of the Stephen Decatur varsity football team’s resounding win over Bennett two weeks ago burned out quickly last week with a 57-7 loss to Wicomico on the road.

The Seahawks beat Bennett, 38-10, on October 11 as every facet of their game came together on at least one shining night. Decatur had just come off a four-game losing skid against tough Bayside North teams, and the win over Bennett began the first of four games against Bayside South schools to close out the regular season.

Any hope of sustaining a late-season run ended quickly last Thursday on the road against Wicomico, however. The Tribe scored early and often on its way to a 57-7 rout of the Seahawks. Next up for Decatur is tough home game against Parkside on Friday, followed by a road game with county rival Snow Hill in the traditional regular season finale on the road next Friday. The Seahawks’ record now stands at 2-5 on the season.
