(April 26, 2019) The Stephen Decatur girls’ lacrosse team picked up its level of play in the second half of Wednesday’s game against the Cambridge Vikings and won the competition, 11-6.
“The girls played way better in the second half than the first. They began making cleaner passes all over the field in the second half with an increased focus on cleaning up their game,” Decatur Coach Sara Braniecki said.
The Lady Seahawks led 4-2 at halftime. They outscored the Vikings 7-4 in the second half.
Junior Sarah Engle led the charge with six goals and one assist. She also won six draws.
Sophomore Victoria Mueller scored three goals and had an assist. Junior Alyssa Romano chipped in with two goals. Sophomore Brittyn Leonard had seven assists.
Junior goalie Isy Kristick recorded nine saves.
“We worked on some of our focuses to perfect our game,” Braniecki said. “We saw our slow break improve, made smarter shot choices, and reduced forcing drives and passes into the offensive end of the field.”
Decatur will host the Wicomico Indians today, Friday, at 4 p.m. The James M. Bennett Clippers will come to Berlin on Wednesday for a 5:30 p.m. game against Decatur.
