SHS soccer rolls 8-1
Salisbury’s soccer team didn’t play at its peak but rolled 8-1 against East Burke in the first round of the 2A soccer playoffs on Tuesday at Ludwig Stadium.
Salisbury (22-1) got four goals from striker Bobby Cardelle and three assists from Lucas Capito.
Also scoring for the Hornets were Michael Brown, Luis Diaz, Capito and Joshua Lynch.
Philip Simons, Andrew Kalogeromitros, Clint Comadoll and Zack Sukkasem had assists.
“Our effort left a lot to be desired,” SHS coach Matt Parrish said. “We came in overconfident and lacking cohesion and precision. To put it mildly, we were lethargic. That will not be an option the rest of the playoffs.
Salisbury will play the Lexington-Hendersonville winner on Saturday.
Hendersonville made the Final Four in 1A a year ago.
