Seahawks top Century, fall to St. Mary’s

(April 5, 2013) Stephen Decatur joined St. Mary’s Ryken and Century high schools in a four-team invitational boys’ lacrosse tournament last Saturday, hosted by the South River Seahawks in Edgewater, Md.

The Decatur Seahawks, with several starters hampered by injuries, faced the St. Mary’s Ryken Knights first and quickly fell behind 6-1. The Knights, who went on to win the tournament, topped the Seahawks 11-8.

“We didn’t quite play well enough the first game to beat them,” said Decatur Coach Scott Lathroum. “We could have, but once again we came out slow and got behind and had to battle back. In the second half, we started playing lacrosse.”

The Seahawks took on the Century Knights next and won 6-3. Captain Andrew Ternahan scored four goals, and fellow senior Riley McCabe netted two.

“We were just a stronger team. We were better athletes,” Lathroum said.

Despite a slow start on Saturday, Lathroum thought the Seahawks finished the day playing well.

“We haven’t been able to get in a groove from the beginning,” he said. “Once we get our game going and we settle into our offense, we’re pretty good. We need to play that way from start to finish.”

Decatur is scheduled to travel to Salisbury on Monday to play the Wi-Hi Indians.
