(Oct. 3, 2014) The Stephen Decatur boys’ soccer team headed down the road Monday to take on one of its Worcester County rivals, the Snow Hill Eagles.
The Seahawks shut out their opponent, 7-0.
Senior captain Corey Gwin netted Decatur’s first goal about a minute into the competition. Sophomore captain Alton Walter gave the visiting Seahawks a 2-0 advantage nine minutes later. In the final minute of the first half, junior Lupe Garcia tallied Decatur’s third goal.
Garcia made it 4-0 five minutes into the second half. Walker scored his second goal of the game 10 minutes later. About a minute after that, Garcia logged his third goal.
Junior Coale Davidson wrapped up the scoring for Decatur around the 23-minute mark.
Seahawks’ goalie Sean Colgan, a senior, stopped six Snow Hill shots.
“We moved the ball a little better than we have been and we created a lot more opportunities,” said Decatur Coach Jamie Greenwood. “We ran our set plays better. We scored two goals off of set plays.”
Greenwood said the Seahawks are not quite where he would like them to be at this point in the season.
“We still have a lot of growing to do and playoffs are approaching. We’re far from playoff form at this point,” he said. “The seniors are stepping up and they’re starting to take more leadership. They know there’s only a few games left in their high school careers.”
The Parkside Rams are set to come to Berlin on Monday to battle Decatur at 5:30 p.m.
