(Oct. 18, 2013) Senior Chloe Maykrantz scored two goals, leading the Stephen Decatur field hockey team to a 7-0 victory over the North Caroline Bulldogs Monday.
“We started off a little bit slow and [we] were playing very complacently, but then we started talking and stepping to the ball,” Decatur Coach Michelle Fluty said after the game in Berlin. The Lady Seahawks led 2-0 at halftime. “It was truly a team win and [it] was great to see the girls play hard and smart,” she added.
Sophomore Hannah FauntLeRoy contributed a goal and an assist. Juniors Brooke Davis and Emily Knopp and seniors Kacie Moore and captain Erin Florek netted one shot apiece.
Senior Cassidy Remmell tallied two assists. Goalies Abby Friedman, a senior, and sophomore Sophia Clemente each made one save.
The next day, the Seahawks traveled to Worton, Md. to play the Kent County Trojans.
The home team kept the Decatur goalies busy as Friedman and Clemente both recorded 15 saves. Kent County scored four goals to shut out Decatur.
“Unfortunately, we played very hesitantly and allowed them to control the pace of the game. We played hard, but mentally we made a lot of mistakes which ended up costing us the game,” Fluty said. “Both Abby and Sophia had a great game.”
The draw for regional tournament bracket positions was scheduled for yesterday, Thursday. Decatur will compete in Section II of the 2A South division. The first round of playoff action is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 22.
