(Oct. 11, 2019) The Stephen Decatur boys’ soccer team pulled out a 1-0 victory over the Pocomoke Warriors on Tuesday in Pocomoke.

“We just couldn’t get clicking. We didn’t spread the field like we like to,” Decatur Coach Jamie Greenwood said. “We haven’t played [a game] in seven days, so I don’t know if that had something to do with it. I think we were rusty.

“It was the first time we played in bad weather,” he continued. “We dominated, we just couldn’t do anything once we got to the 18 [yard box]. They packed it in and that’s really what hurt us.”

Decatur also has several players battling injuries.

With about 15 minutes left in the game, junior Kellen Catrino dribbled the ball down the right side and sent it into the goal area. Junior Emmanuel Aroh finished the play to provide the Seahawks with a one-goal lead.

“It was good to get our legs back under us,” Greenwood said. “Once we scored we really calmed down and started to knock the ball around. We played decent the last 15 minutes of the game.”

Decatur sophomore goalie Aeddan Jones recorded three saves.

Decatur will host the Washington Jaguars on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
