Frantz's late goal forces playoff OT

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

During last week's District 11 Class AA girls soccer first-round matchup against Palisades, Salisbury trailed 1-0 for roughly half of the first half and nearly the entire second half.

With under three minutes to play, the Falcons remained down by a goal. Their season was on the verge of ending earlier than they wanted it to.

The Falcons, however, still had some fight left and weren't ready to let the season end on their home turf.

Brittany Burda

Q. What grade are you currently in?

A. 12th

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. That's a tough question. Personally, I think it has to be tied between history and my media class. I've always loved learning about human culture. However, my media class is also one of my favorite classes because I love being creative and running our school's news show. I'm thinking about going into graphic design, so this class is valuable to me.

Rowlands nets two in season finale

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

While there have been bumps along the road for the Salisbury field hockey team this season, the Falcons certainly ended 2013 on a positive note.

In a nonconference matchup against Central Catholic, Amanda Rowlands tallied two goals and an assist in the Falcons' (4-14 overall; 2-14 in Colonial League) 3-1 win over the Vikings (0-16 overall; 0-14) on Saturday morning at Salisbury Middle School.

Long places 10th at district golf

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

Despite being a bit nervous heading into last week's District 11 Golf Championships at Blue Ridge Country Club's par 72 course, Salisbury's Kody Long still had high expectations of himself.

Unfortunately, severe weather conditions during play on Monday had postponed the remainder of the tournament until Tuesday. And perhaps it was the effects of the heavy rain and gusty winds that put Long in a situation on Monday that ultimately hurt his goal of advancing to regionals.

Lady Falcon defense thriving in new system

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

Heading into the season, Salisbury girls soccer head coach Rick Babyak wasn't sure how the team's new defensive scheme would work out.

As the regular season has reached its conclusion, Babyak couldn't be happier with the decision to change.

Switching from a sweeper-stopper defense last season, Babyak implemented the flat back four defense over the offseason. After losing a number of solid defenders from last season's team, it remained to be seen how the change would pan out.

Falcons fall to Pirates, 35-7

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

While Friday night's scoreboard showed a 35-7 loss to Palisades, Salisbury football head coach Andy Cerco noted a number positives that displayed the team's character and continuity.

Battling a number of injuries along the offensive line, as well as an ejection from one of those linemen during the first half, a number of Falcons stepped up for the greater good of the team.
