Girls’ Soccer Takes on Districts

By Justin Burkhardt

Girls’ soccer looks to move past an embarrassing defeat last week to Southern Lehigh and prepare for a tough district’s road ahead of them. Last week’s blunder was due to a misunderstanding of how a tie would affect the league standings. It was an awkward moment for Salisbury girls soccer after the tie was established and both teams began to cheer in victory. It wasn’t shortly after that Salisbury girls soccer figured out that the tie actually pushed them back further in the standings.

Pushing pass this however, girls soccer looks to take on Allentown Central Catholic High School in districts. A place and time has not been determined as of yet. Salisbury is the 3rd seed and Allentown Central Catholic is the 4th seed.

Coming into districts, the Falcons are 12-4-2 total and 8-4-2 in leagues. Furthermore, two of Salisbury’s offensive stars: Bucknell commit Rylee Donaldson and Erica Holben, were  named 1st team All-stars. Meanwhile, the Vikings are coming into districts with a record of 8-8-1 total and 6-8-1 in leagues. These teams measure closely in skill and record, making for what will likely be, a close matchup for round 1 of districts.
