The win gives Farmington an overall record of 3-2 after back-to-back, season-opening losses to Rosemount and Lakeville North.
DeCastro's goal came as a result of a strategic move instituted by coach Julian Buss late in the second half.
"With 15 minutes left I decided to gamble and move Robin from stopper to forward to see if he could generate any offense for us," Buss said.
"Robin has quite an unusual instinct for the goal and a powerful shot. He is also outstanding at heading the ball."
Buss also applauded the offensive play of Kaid Nokes, Hunter Meyers, Blake Smith and Leslie Adjei, all of whom had quality scoring chances for the winners.

The pesky Tiger defense has now allowed just two scores in the last three games.
"This was a big section win for us," Buss said, "especially because it was such a long day with a seven o'clock game on the first day back from Labor Day vacation."
Farmington will go after its fourth consecutive win Thursday when it opens it Missota Conference campaign at Chanhassen.
