(Dec. 14, 2018) The Stephen Decatur girls’ basketball team traveled down the road to take on the Pocomoke Warriors on Tuesday and came home with a 56-32 victory.
“Defensive pressure and rotation was effective,” Decatur Coach Scott Kurtz said. “Offensively, we played more up-tempo and passed extremely well. The girls played unselfish, team basketball and it was effective on both ends of the court.”
The Lady Seahawks led 13-8 at the end of the first quarter. They outscored the Warriors 17-7 in the second quarter to go into the halftime break on top 30-15. After three quarters, Decatur held a 43-21 advantage.
Junior Sarah Engle scored 13 points. Sophomore Jessica Janney chipped in with 13 points, seven rebounds and three steals.
Senior captain Sofia Gordy tallied 10 points and seven rebounds. Sophomore Mary Mergott added four points and eight rebounds.
Decatur will take a trip to Princess Anne on Monday to battle the Washington Jaguars at 4 p.m.
