Area briefs: Salisbury soccer beats Dragons

From staff reports
Paul Kollie scored three goals and Salisbury won its third game in the CCC with a 5-0 victory against West Davidson on Monday.
The Hornets (3-4, 3-0) remained unbeaten in their conference by beating a West Davidson team that came in undefeated and ranked No. 12 in 2A.
Kollie opened the scoring on a breakaway 20 minutes into the match, and Daman Bowman added a goal on a cross from Victor Nyae. Kollie scored his second goal on a long pass from Randy Almeida 12 minutes into the second half, then scored again on a pass from freshman Kenny Bonilla.
“We’re starting to find ourselves,” Salisbury coach Tom Sexton said. “The scoring punch is back. I knew somebody was gonna fill in right away, and that kid is Paul Kollie.”
Another Hornet helped too, as senior Ryne Maddox scored the final goal.
Maddox entered the game with three minutes remaining, got the ball on the left side, cut left to beat one defender, went right to get past another and placed a shot just inside the right post from 15 yards out.
“This was a text-book goal,” Sexton said.
