Salisbury soccer rolls
From staff reportsSalisbury cruised past Central Davidson 5-1 on Wednesday to remain undefeated.
Jamie Dagenhart and Lindsey Davis scored two goals apiece for the second straight night, and Maria Tonseth also scored for the Hornets (10-0, 6-0 CCC). Kaitlyn Cuevas and Tonseth had two assists each, and Karen Presnell added another.
Salisbury trailed Central Davidson 1-0 at halftime before winning 2-1 the first time the teams played, and Salisbury coach Matt Parrish said their first game was “the toughest 80 minutes we faced all year long.”
Parrish also worried about having Wednesday night be a “trap game” after Salisbury defeated an East Davidson team Tuesday that had given the Hornets problems recently. He didn’t want Salisbury to overlook its next opponent, and Davis scored three minutes into the game last night.
“That kind of set tone for match,” Parrish said. “I don’t want to say it completely alleviated my anxiety, but it helped out.”
n Mooresville routed East Rowan 11-0.
The Mustangs (5-7 overall, 5-6 NPC) had hoped to neutralize two of Mooresville’s offensive weapons with a pair of defenders, but coach Eduel Atkins said that strategy fell apart when the Blue Devils scored 14 minutes into the game. The game turned “ugly” from there.
Atkins said Erin Ketner did play well against Mooresville, which is ranked sixth in the 3A state coaches’ poll.
