(March 30, 2018) The Stephen Decatur boys’ lacrosse team scored a 15-7 victory over the Easton Warriors, in Easton, on Tuesday.

“I was very happy with how we played,” said Decatur Coach Scott Lathroum. “We were good on ground balls [and] our transition was good. We were getting the ball up the field fast and scoring.

“Let’s push the ball, let’s go. That’s the way we’re playing,” he continued. “It’s fun to watch.”

Eight Seahawks scored and 11 of the goals were assisted.

Senior captain Charlie Coates had three goals and three assists. Senior Collin Eichelberger, a team captain, contributed four goals and two assists.

Junior Chase Porter netted two goals and had an assist and senior Dominic Klebe tallied two goals. Senior Parker Wheeler (two assists) and juniors Kevin Beck, Jack Remmell and Xan Johnston scored one goal each.

Lathroum said the Seahawks dominated the face-offs.

“We won like the first six or seven. Face-offs is where it all starts,” Lathroum said. “The guys on the wings – long pole and short stick [midfielders] – did a good job too.”

Eichelberger won nine of the face-offs (over 50 percent) he took.

Junior goalie Pasquale Dascoli stopped seven Easton shots.

In front of him, Lathroum said “the defense as a unit played well.”

Decatur’s next game is Wednesday, April 11 at 4 p.m. in Berlin against the Kent County Trojans.
