(April 19, 2013) It took the Stephen Decatur girls’ lacrosse team a few minutes to get warmed up on Monday, but the Lady Seahawks seemed unstoppable once they found their groove. The squad outscored the North Caroline Bulldogs by an 18-point margin at Seahawk Stadium in Berlin.
“They didn’t play well to begin with, but then they settled down a little bit and played their offense,” said Decatur Coach Bob Musitano. “They realized [the Bulldogs] were a weaker team, therefore, everyone went to the goal instead of playing regular lacrosse.”
Senior captain Ashley Trice scored a little over three minutes into the game. She netted a second shot about a minute later to put the Seahawks on top 2-0.
Senior Eileen Hayman gave Decatur a three-goal lead with 18:22 left in the half. Trice tallied her third goal less than two minutes later.
Decatur scored 11 more times in the first half to go into the break with a 15-0 advantage. The home won the competition 19-1.
Thirteen Seahawks scored. Trice led the charge with three goals. Junior Sammi Quilter chipped in with two goals and two assists. Freshman Elle Bargar logged two goals and an assist.
Sophomore Jillian Petito stopped 10 North Caroline shots.
“We’re halfway through the season. We’re 5-1 and what I’m really looking forward to is playing Easton on Friday,” Musitano said after Monday’s game. “Easton will be a good test for them. I think they can handle that pretty well. They’re coming together. They’re a great group of kids.”
Decatur is scheduled to take on the Warriors on their field in Easton tonight, Friday.
