Preview: Salisbury at West Davidson

Time: 7:30 p.m.
Records: Salisbury 5-1; West Davidson 3-3
Series: Salisbury leads 7-3, although the Hornets had their hands full with the Green Dragons not long ago. WD beat the Hornets in 2005, 2006 and 2007 with very good athletes and plenty of physicality.
Last meeting: Salisbury trailed early but won 49-26 at Ludwig Stadium. The Hornets rolled up 365 rushing yards, with departed Romar Morris accounting for 176.
Last game: Salisbury smacked Carson 43-7 on Friday in its final non-conference tuneup; West Davidson got drilled 41-13 on Monday by Randleman, which is coached by former Catawba assistant Shane Handy
Next week: Salisbury is at home against Central Davidson; West Davidson has another tough one at Lexington
Game notes: It’s the CCC opener for both.
Injury-plagued West Davidson faces a short turnaround and is coming off a lopsided loss, so the odds are long that it can present major problems for the surging Hornets, who have lost only to West Rowan.
Jake Walser’s running is the biggest threat for the ground-oriented Green Dragons. He had 106 yards on 19 carries on Monday.
The Hornets look like one of the better teams in 2A at this point, although the non-league schedule included four games against Rowan schools that aren’t having strong seasons.
Statistically, the Hornets have been overwhelming. They lead the county in rushing offense, scoring offense and total offense and they lead in every defensive category.
Center Montana Harmon leads the charge upfront, and QB Brian Bauk and backs Justin Ruffin, Max Allen and Dominique Dismuke are all among the county’s top six rushers.
