(Oct. 27, 2017) The Stephen Decatur girls’ soccer team received the No. 4 seed in Section II of the 3A East Region tournament bracket and will battle the top-seeded James M. Bennett Clippers on Tuesday at 5 p.m. in Salisbury.

“We need to score goals and tighten up on defense to be successful,” Decatur Coach Maggie Berke said.

The Lady Seahawks finished the regular season with a 4-8 record and earned a first-round bye in the regional tournament. Bennett outscored Decatur, 5-2, twice during the regular season.

Berke said the team looks good going into playoffs.

“The girls have a fresh attitude toward playoffs,” she said. “The season didn’t go as we’d hoped and it’s hard to keep the positivity through that, but with the fresh start of states they have a new outlook.”

The winner will meet either the No. 2 Chesapeake Cougars of Anne Arundel or No. 3 Northeast Eagles of Anne Arundel, on Friday Nov. 3. Those two teams will go head-to-head on Tuesday as well.
