Prep soccer: Salisbury 3, Central Davidson 1
Hanson Saryee, Jordy Sanchez and Michael Mazur scored goals as Salisbury’s soccer team earned a 3-1 win against Central Davidson on Monday evening.
Salisbury coach Tom Sexton said right back Luke Hutton and left back David Simons had their best outings of the season. Spencer Dixon and B.J. Woods were partly responsible for holding prolific forward Andrew Dilley in check.
Wes McNeely contributed in his return from a concussion.
“Our defense was very stout,” Sexton said. “We spread the field very nicely and played physically and aggressively, and we played a pretty possession game. We’ve been striving for this.”
Mazur’s cross from the left side found Saryee, who scored on a header at the right post 71/2 minutes into the match.
Salisbury (16-1-1, 5-1 CCC) led 1-0 at halftime, and keeper Connor Miller finished with three saves.
“He had one early in the match to keep it from going 1-1, and he had a punchout on a corner (kick), if we don’t get that, it might have been tied,” Sexton said.
Mazur had another cross from the left side to set up a second-half goal from Sanchez, who knocked a horizontal bicycle kick into the right side of the net.
Matt Cervantes’ cross from the left side connected with Mazur near the right post, and he scored the final goal.
Salisbury plays host to Lexington on Wednesday and will face East Lincoln at 2 p.m. on Saturday. The Hornets’ big home match with West Davidson has been rescheduled for next Thursday.
