Salisbury started an important, busy week with a 2-0 victory over Central Cabarrus on Monday.
Salisbury got on the board in the first half when Landon Goodman sent a ball to Ahmedin Salcinovic, who beat a defender and found himself one-on-one with the keeper. Salcinovic found the side netting, and that score held at halftime.
