(Sept. 20, 2019) The Stephen Decatur boys’ soccer team shut out the Snow Hill Eagles, 7-0, on Tuesday.

“It’s one of the best games of soccer we’ve played. I was very happy,” said Decatur Coach Jamie Greenwood. “We passed the ball really well, we moved to space and played the ball into space as well. Everyone was positive with each other. We just played very simple soccer.”

Senior captain John Karacoulakis got things rolling for Decatur about five minutes into the game. Senior Drew Haueisen netted the Seahawks’ second goal 16 minutes before halftime in Snow Hill.

The Berlin squad tacked on five more goals in the second half. Goals were scored by sophomores James Barrett and Miguel Cervantes and juniors Evan Kinsey, Caleb Magee and Micah Bourne.

Sophomore Aeddan Jones played in goal in the first half for Decatur. He recorded two saves. Sophomore Zach Powers stopped two Snow Hill shots in the second half.

“It was pretty soccer tonight,” Greenwood said after the game. “It was much better than we have been playing. We passed, we communicated and we just played simple soccer. That’s going to be our key to success.”

Decatur will travel to Centreville to battle the Queen Anne’s Lions today, Friday, at 5:30 p.m.

“We’ve got to go up there and play. We just need to continue what we did [against Snow Hill],” Greenwood said.
