Decatur logs 4-1 win over Crisfield

(Sept. 26, 2014) Although it wasn’t their best performance, the Stephen Decatur Seahawks still came away with a 4-1 win over the Crisfield Crabbers boys’ soccer team Monday in Berlin.

Junior Lupe Garcia dribbled past several Crisfield players and shot the ball to the far post to provide Decatur with a 1-0 lead with 26 minutes left in the first half.

The Seahawks went into the halftime break with a one-goal advantage.

“We were fortunate to be up 1-0 at the half,” said Decatur Coach Jamie Greenwood. “I didn’t think we played well. We were disconnected. We were unable to connect passes. We were playing long balls and we were not successful. We needed to get back to our game and start playing shorter balls.”

About 18 minutes into the second half, senior captain Evan Heim netted the Seahawks’ second goal. Three minutes later, junior Brady Gilbert gave Decatur a three-goal cushion.

The visiting Crabbers scored off a free kick around the five-minute mark.

Garcia tallied his second goal of the game with less than a minute remaining in the competition.

Decatur senior goalie Sean Colgan made five saves.

Greenwood thought the Seahawks’ level of play picked up in the second half, but he said the boys still need to do a better job moving the ball, playing short passes and running set pieces.

Decatur will ride down the road on Monday to face the Snow Hill Eagles at 4 p.m.
