Falcons fall to Spartans

Salisbury’s two-game win streak came to an end on Friday night as the Falcons fell to North Schuylkill in a 42-0 blowout.

The Falcons put together a solid drive on their first possession of the game, picking up 50 yards over 10 plays, but the drive stalled out and ended with a turnover on downs.

North Schuylkill took over possession on the 25-yard line and marched down the field for a touchdown. This Spartans’ drive was their first of six consecutive drives that ended in touchdowns.

Following its opening drive Salisbury failed to effectively move the ball on offense as it would net only 10 yards throughout the rest of the game.

While the Falcons offense failed to move the ball, the defense struggled to slow down the North Schuylkill offense.

The Spartans offense put up 447 total yards and only two of their eight drives didn’t result in a touchdown.

Salisbury looked to be simply outmatched in every aspect of the game on Friday, but it will have a chance to bounce back this week as it will host Northern Lehigh.

This will be a tough matchup for the Falcons as the Bulldogs have been very good offensively, averaging almost 36 points a game.

For Salisbury to win this game it will have to completely turn things around. The defense will need to find a way to slow down the Northern Lehigh offense while the Falcons’ offense will need to find a way to consistently move the ball.
