(April 27, 2018) Goals were traded during the first few minutes of the Stephen Decatur–Cambridge girls’ lacrosse games on Wednesday in Berlin, but then the Lady Seahawks started netting shot after shot and never looked back.

“The girls connected well with their passes. They did a great job of finding the open girls on our offensive end and in transition to help us pursue the goal often,” Decatur Coach Sara Braniecki said following the Seahawks’ 17-4 victory. “The girls played a dynamic team offense and a connected team defense.”

With the game tied 2-2, Decatur went on a scoring run and, by halftime, the home team had pulled ahead 10-3. The Berlin squad outscored its opponent 7-1 in the second half.

“They improved their draw work to help us have more possession time than in previous games,” Braniecki said.

Freshman Brittyn Lyra Leonard led Decatur with four goals. Senior Maggie Bunting and sophomore Alyssa Romano chipped in with three goals and an assist each. Junior Logan Townsend had two goals and two assists.

Senior captains Hattie Brous, Lily Belle Baker and Chloe Sass, sophomore Elizabeth Dutton and freshman Victoria Mueller netted one goal apiece. Junior Lily Figgs logged four assists.

Sophomore goalies Isy Kristick and Kiley Hamby made one save each.

Decatur will go to Salisbury today, Friday, to take on the Wicomico Indians at 4 p.m. On Monday, the Seahawks will play the Saint Peter & Paul Sabres at 3:30 p.m. in Easton.
