Salisbury soccer edges East Lincoln
Salisbury’s boys soccer team won 3-2 at previously unbeaten East Lincoln, which eliminated the Hornets from the playoffs last season.
Jesus Olvera scored three times on set pieces, and two of his goals were headers. His goal following a corner kick from Connor Miller broke a tie in the 74th minute.
“The old adage in big matches, more than 70 percent of the time, set pieces win or lose the match for you,” Salisbury coach Tom Sexton said.
East Lincoln scored first, and Daman Bowman fed Olvera for a match-tying goal in the 16th minute.
Olvera headed in a corner kick from Will Mason in the 48th minute. East Lincoln (4-1) tied the score in the 54th minute despite a fine effort from Alex Hunter.
Sexton praised the play of Michael Mazur, Oscar Bonilla, Paul Kollie and Hunter Fisher. Bonilla contributed at forward, center midfielder and outside midfielder.
“We got a lot of mileage out of Oscar Bonilla,” Sexton said. “They had a hard time trying to keep up with him.”
Salisbury is scheduled to face Carson on Friday.
