Over a few plays, Salisbury had a potentially tight game with undefeated Palisades suddenly change into a one-sided affair.
The Falcons (2-4) were victims of three turnovers (a blocked punt, an interception, and a fumble) in a three-minute span that resulted in 21 points and they eventually fell to Palisades, 49-0, Friday night at Salisbury High School.
After their first seven games of the season, Salisbury has begun to realize how its defense can be a key to its success down the road.
Specifically, the Falcons got a recent reminder when they rallied for a 78-72 overtime win over Saucon Valley in the consolation game of their holiday tournament Dec. 28. A day earlier, Salisbury (5-2) dropped a 47-44 decision to Quakertown in the opening game of the tournament on a last-second three-point shot.
