(Sept. 27, 2019) The Stephen Decatur field hockey team won its first game of the season on Tuesday, topping the Kent County Trojans, 1-0, in Worton, Maryland.

“They worked well together [and] communicated well,” said Decatur Coach Amy Matthews. “They got the ball up the field and played good defense.”

Sophomore Emma Ozazewski scored off a pass from freshman Bre Ferguson about 12 minutes into the second half.

Senior Alexis Duvall played in the goal for Decatur. She stopped 13 Kent County shots.

“We definitely saw improvements today,” Matthews said after the game. “It’s clicking out there for them. [They know] where they need to be and how to communicate with each other.”

Decatur’s next game is Tuesday, Oct. 1, against the Washington Jaguars at 6 p.m. in Princess Anne.
