Sunday, May 14, 2017 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Of the set of six softball games at Pates Park on Saturday, the fourth game between Salisbury and Wilson figured to be one of the most competitive at the Colonial League’s Play Day event.

The Lady Falcons must have missed that memo.

Much like the rest of the five games that were decided by at least 10 runs, Salisbury, too, followed suit with the blowout victories. The Lady Falcons (7-3 overall; 6-4 Colonial League) used a nine-run sixth inning to separate themselves from Wilson...

Mistakes plague Falcons in loss to Northwestern

Thursday, April 20, 2017 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

A couple team looking to snap early-season losing streaks met up last Wednesday at Salisbury High School.

Northwestern broke out of its funk with an 8-3 win behind some timely hitting and strong pitching performance from senior Mason Vogwill.

“The past few games we dropped were all mental mistakes, errors that we had to work on in practice,” said Vogwill. “Today we didn’t make as many errors. We swung the bats well today and puts some runs on the board.”

Thursday, April 20, 2017 by TJ ENGLE in Sports

The situation was eerily similar to last year’s late-season game when Northwestern and Salisbury went into the last inning with a tie score.

The Tigers won that battle back on May 9 of 2016, but the Falcons got revenge last Wednesday with a 6-5 come-from behind win on their home field.

“This was the same exact scenario (as last season’s game at Northwestern),” said Salisbury head coach Jeff Appleman. “It was the same exact score. Same exact scenario in the bottom of the seventh...
