(Oct. 4, 2019) The Stephen Decatur girls’ soccer team capitalized on more of its opportunities in the second half and won, 4-1, over the Mardela Warriors on Wednesday in Mardela Springs.
Junior captain Macy Dill scored for Decatur in the first half.
“We had quite a few opportunities in the first half. Unfortunately, we were unable to put them away,” said Decatur Coach Steve Isett.
Within the first five minutes of the second half, freshman Mia Kemp netted a shot.
Kemp and Dill both scored two goals in the second half.
“If you want to win, your good players have to play well. They have to score goals and they did,” Isett said. “We look to put them in a position where they can be in and around the goal. We rely on those two to score goals and keep us in games.”
Senior captain Isy Kristick recorded six saves in goal for Decatur.
“We pretty much controlled the game. Eighty percent of the time we were in possession,” Isett said. “We were able to do a lot of what we wanted to.”
With center back, senior captain Alyssa Romano out with an ankle sprain, Isett said several underclassmen stepped up, including junior center back Julianna Fohner and junior midfielder Victoria Mueller.
“It’s a good sign for the future,” Isett said.
Decatur will travel to Salisbury to play the James M. Bennett Clippers today, Friday, at 4 p.m. The Lady Seahawks will host the Parkside Rams on Monday in Berlin at 5:30 p.m.
