(Feb. 1, 2013) The first few minutes of Tuesday’s girls’ basketball game between the Stephen Decatur Seahawks and host Pocomoke Warriors were scoreless, but once the visitors scored, there was no stopping them. Decatur topped its Worcester County rival, 51-38.
The Seahawks tallied 14 points in the first quarter and limited the Warriors to three. Decatur tacked on 17 points in the second quarter to lead 31-12 at the halftime break.
Pocomoke outscored Decatur 11-9 and 15-11 in the third and fourth quarters, respectively, but the home team was unable to pull ahead.
Senior co-captain Abbey Schorr was the Seahawks’ top producer with 24 points and 17 rebounds. Monique Wise, also a senior captain, chipped in with six points and 10 rebounds.
“We did so many things so well. We passed well, we were moving to the ball, we beat them to the ball and our press led to turnovers that we capitalized on,” said Decatur Coach Amy Fenzel-Mergott. “We had high energy.
“They pressed us in the second half and I thought we handled it better than the last time we played them,” she said.
The Seahawks have five games remaining in the regular season. The squad’s next match is set for 4 p.m. Tuesday at home against the Washington Jaguars.
“We need to stay healthy with illness and injury,” Fenzel-Mergott said. “We have to stay in the right mindset and keep our eyes focused on the prize.”
