High school soccer: First loss for Hornets; Carson wins

Staff report

CONCORD — Salisbury dropped its first girls soccer match of the season on Friday.

The Hornets lost to Concord (7-3) in a non-conference matchup, 2-1.  Anna Grace Woolly scored the lone goal for the Hornets (10-1).

“I am exceptionally proud of the way our team competed for 80 minutes,” SHS coach Matt Parrish said. “We had a long week. Circumstances found us playing back-to-back-to-back nights and yet we still worked hard the entire match. Every team has to overcome adversity over the season, whether it be conditions, dirty or physical play, fatigue, poor officiating, injuries, quality competition, whatever. Tonight gives a chance to grow and continue to improve. I don’t even want to single out any player because I think our whole team deserves credit for how we represented ourselves tonight and this entire week.”

League-leading Salisbury plays three Central Carolina Conference matches next week, at South Rowan on Monday, home against Thomasville on Wednesday, and home against East Davidson on Thursday. All game times are 6 p.m.

 

Carson wins again

CHINA GROVE — Carson won its fourth straight on Friday, shutting out Central Cabarrus, 5-0.

Carson’s defense posted its fourth straight shutout.

Freshman twins Hannah and Riley scored two goals each, while Emelyn Sotelo had one.

Hannah Isley scored her 13th and 14th goals of the season.

Carson (7-3-1) had won 5-4 earlier at Central Cabarrus.

Carson is 2-0 in the North Piedmont Conference and is tied for first with South Iredell.

Carson plays at Statesville on Tuesday and has a non-conference match at Concord on Wednesday.
