(Oct. 12, 2018) The Stephen Decatur field hockey team won its first game in three years, almost to the date, shutting out the North Caroline Bulldogs, 2-0, in Ridgely on Wednesday.
“I think they stepped it up during the end of the second half. They started making good passes and being in the right positions,” Decatur Coach Amy Matthews said.
Junior Haley Triplett scored with 2:40 left in first half. Senior captain Lily Figgs tallied her goal with 10:23 remaining in the game.
Decatur sophomore Jocelyn Berzonski had four saves and junior Alexis Duvall recorded three.
“They were very excited about winning. They needed it,” Matthews said. “They learn from every game and we see improvement each game.”
Decatur’s last win was on Oct. 5, 2015, when the Seahawks outscored the Bulldogs, 5-1, on their home field in Berlin.
The Seahawks will host the Kent County Trojans today, Friday, at 4 p.m.
On Monday, Decatur will play the Saint Michaels Saints at 4:30 p.m. in Saint Michaels.
