Area Sports: Salisbury, South win in soccer
From staff reports
Salisbury’s boys soccer team won 1-0 against North Davidson on Monday and moved into a tie for second place in the Central Carolina Conference.
The Hornets (14-7, 11-6) scored when Juan Salazar found Brayan Avilez, who converted from just inside the corner of the 18-yard box.
“The last 60 minutes were highly contested with North Davidson controlling a significant portion of possession and creating quality chances,” Salisbury coach Matt Parrish said.
Salisbury defenders Axel Alejo, Brody Dillon, Gabriel Fuentes Reyes, Juan Garcia Cortez and Angel Quintero were stout in front of keeper Wade Robins, who recorded eight saves and the shutout.
“Irvin Almaraz, Dennis Anaya, Bennett Clark and Luke Graeber all took on unusual roles and competed at a high level,” Parrish said.
Salisbury has swept North Davidson.
Leading scorer Joshua Portillo and key midfielder Hugo Trujillo did not play due to injuries and will not be able to compete in the regular-season finale Tuesday at South Rowan.
That match was moved up a day due to the weather forecast.
South Rowan (13-9, 9-8) won against Central Davidson 5-0 on Monday.
