Prep soccer: Salisbury 2, West Davidson 0

Staff report
SALISBURY ó Salisburyís boys soccer team won 2-0 against West Davidson on Monday at Ludwig Stadium.
West Davidson (11-4-2, 3-3 CCC) packed in its defense, got three miraculous saves from keeper Thomas Blake and made things interesting.
The third-ranked Hornets (14-0-1, 6-0) managed to prevail with goals by Bobby Cardelle and Kenny Bonilla.
Cardelleís goal came early. He finished efficiently after Emmy Turcios slipped a through ball to him.
ěIt was like a short-field breakaway,î Salisbury coach Matt Parrish said. ěAnd Bobbyís probably our best at finishing one-on-one.î
That goal had to stand alone the rest of the first half and most of the second.
ěWe were a little bit complacent in the first half, and West Davidson is physical and tall and won a lot of 50-50 balls,î Parrish said. ěThe second half, we won more balls and had our share of opportunities, but you just have to tip your cap to their keeper.î
The Hornets finally put the match away in the 72nd minute when Bonilla converted in traffic off a corner by Zachary Sukkasem.
With their eighth straight CCC title in their sights, the Hornets take on 10th-ranked Central Davidson (12-2-1, 5-1) at home on Wednesday.
