(Sept. 29, 2017) The Stephen Decatur boys’ soccer team scored one goal in the first half and netted five more in the second to win Tuesday’s game against the Wicomico Indians in Salisbury, 6-0.

“We’re trying to find our formation. We went to three forwards and it seemed to generate a little more offense,” Decatur Coach Jamie Greenwood said. “We went from a 4-2-3-1 to a 4-3-3 [formation]. In the second half, we played three in the back, four in the midfield and three up top. We scored five goals in the second half so it seemed to work.”

Junior Brady Ford scored the Seahawks’ first goal about four minutes before halftime.

Sophomore Brian Rodriguez put Decatur up 2-0, 12 and a half minutes into the second half.

Junior George Luzier boosted the Berlin squad’s advantage to three midway into the second half. Senior captain Ryan Duncan made the score 4-0 about eight minutes later.

Senior Jeremy Danner scored two goals in 22 seconds and Decatur pulled ahead 6-0.

Junior goalie Brett Berquist wasn’t challenged much. He recorded two saves.

“I thought we moved the ball well, from directly player to player, and we moved off the ball much better, so that helped us as well,” Greenwood said.

Decatur next game is on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. against the Kent Island Buccaneers in Berlin.

“We have a long week of training,” Greenwood said. “We need to work on our formation and shape and work on playing more to feet. I feel our movement off the ball needs to improve too.”
