(Oct. 5, 2012) Monday’s field hockey game between the Stephen Decatur Lady Seahawks and St. Michaels Saints was scoreless until the final minute, when the home team netted a shot to secure a 1-0 victory.
“They came out ready [to play], but unfortunately fell back into a slump, especially in the second half,” said Decatur Coach Michelle Fluty.
The Saints scored with 1:27 remaining in the competition.
“Unfortunately, it is the same mistakes in the past games that cost us the win once again. The refusal to mark up consistently is really hurting our ability to play solid defense,” Fluty said. “Also, we went from taking 13 shots in the first half to only four in the second half. We will need to continue to work on these same skills in order to be successful in our upcoming games.”
Junior Abby Friedman split time in the goal with freshman Sophia Clementi. Friedman recorded two saves and Clementi stopped three Saints’ shots.
The Seahawks will travel to Salisbury on Monday to battle the Parkside Rams.
