HS boys soccer

Salisbury dropped a tough 2-1 decision to Central Carolina Conference rival West Davidson on Tuesday at Ludwig Stadium.

The game was originally scheduled for Monday but was pushed back to Tuesday due to a dreary weather forecast.

West Davidson (7-1, 1-0)  got two goals in the opening minutes, scoring off a corner and taking advantage of a defensive mistake. The Green Dragons made those early goals hold up and withstood a strong Salisbury comeback.

Salisbury (5-3, 1-1) scored with under 15 minutes left when Carlos Henriquez connected on a free kick from the top of the 18-yard box.

“Despite several close opportunities we just couldn’t get the equalizer,” SHS coach Matt Parrish  said. “We just came out flat and I take full responsibility for it.  We  made a few mental mistakes and West Davidson made us pay for them.  If we eliminate those bad moments we can be a drastically different team. I know it is  there, that it is possible. I just have to find the best way to bring it out of our guys.”

Salisbury hosts South Davidson tonight at 6 p.m.
