Warrior offense overpowers Salisbury

Thursday, October 25, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Salisbury head coach Andy Cerco and the Falcons knew Wilson's offense was capable of putting up points and creating big plays with their playmakers across the field.

And that was evident from the Warriors first play from scrimmage.

The Warriors - who recorded eight plays that went for 20 yards or more with three of those going for at least 50 yards - built a comfortable 27-13 lead at halftime. Three more scores in the second half helped Wilson leave to its second win of the...

Falcons looking for a win against Warriors

Wednesday, October 17, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

After traveling to Saucon Valley and Palisades in the previous two weeks, the Salisbury football team is eager to return home for this week's matchup against Wilson.

The Falcons (1-6) will look to halt their four-game losing skid when the Warriors (1-6) visit on Friday night. The Warriors have lost their last five games.

Senior quarterback Ryan Dailey leads a Warrior offense that has averaged 27.5 points per game over their last two contests. If the Falcons want to slow down...

Rosario splits time between soccer, field hockey

Wednesday, October 17, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Salisbury senior Jessica Rosario has been a member of both the girls soccer and field hockey teams since her freshman season.

It wasn't until this season, however, that Rosario would have to make a decision she hadn't in the past. Now that the girls soccer program had been moved into the fall season along with field hockey, Rosario was left with a choice.

Instead, Rosario took a slightly different path. She wasn't going to give up either sport in the fall season. With the...

Falcons reach Colonial League final

Wednesday, October 17, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Mark Allinson wasn't satisfied with his team's 2-0 lead.

He knew that one goal by top-seeded Saucon Valley could swing momentum in Monday's Colonial League boys soccer semifinal.

The Salisbury head coach got what he wanted when forward Kevin Barahona scored on a free kick play to give the Falcons a 3-0 lead, which they would hold onto for the win.

"That third goal just crushed them," said Allinson. "It was a nice free kick. Anytime you have a 2-0 lead, they get one goal...

Tennis tandems end year at districts

Wednesday, October 17, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Head coach Rob Benson was in utter joy that two Salisbury girls tennis teams qualified for districts.

Senior Ali Greenholt and Talli Oliver was the number one team, and Laura Albright and Michelle Dang was the number two Falcons double team. Both teams experienced early exits from the tournament, but with Greenholt being one of only two seniors on the roster, the young Falcons gained some vital experience to try and make a deeper run next year.

"The ladies have come so far this...

Falcons seek to end losing skid against Pirates

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

When Salisbury travels to Palisades for this week's Colonial League football matchup, the Falcons will look to end a season-high three-game losing streak and get back into the win column.

The Falcons (1-5), who have struggled offensively in the past couple of weeks, failed to get on the scoreboard during last Friday's 38-0 defeat to Saucon Valley.

"We got a little bit behind early," said head coach Andy Cerco. "Then we gave up a punt return for a touchdown [and] that didn't...

Greenholt goes two rounds at District 11 tournament

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Last Thursday marked the first time that Salisbury senior Ali Greenholt competed in a district singles tennis match during her career. And Greenholt put on a solid showing for the Falcons.

After Jim Thorpe's Kasey Herman rebounded after a first set defeat, Greenholt kept her poise in closing out the super tiebreaker and capturing the victory - 6-4, 3-6, 10-8 - in the first round of the District 11 2A girls tennis tournament.

"I'm extremely pleased, not only for her, but...

Boys XC team has turned the corner

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Salisbury boys cross country team may look very similar to last season's team, but there is a different feel to this year's squad.

After capturing just three wins all of 2011, the Falcons (16-6) have more than quadrupled that total so far this year. During last Wednesday's meet against Palmerton, Catasauqua and Wilson at Salisbury Middle School, the Falcons added win number 16 to their resume.

"They're just running really well, and they're working hard in practice," said...

Girls soccer falls short in Notre Dame match

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Mackenzie Groff jogged back to midfield getting high fives from her teammates after her second goal in two minutes, during the opening half. But the quick start by Salisbury was not enough to stop a late run by Notre Dame Green Pond, netting three second half goals to win a 5-4 thriller Monday night at Notre Dame High School.

The win catapults the Crusaders near the top four seedings for next week's Colonial League playoffs. The loss seemingly eliminates Salisbury (8-7, 7-5) from...
