vs. Deerfield Academy
Flood Marr Tournament
|Date:||December 16, 2017|
Knights Top Deerfield, Finish Unbeaten in Group Play; Will Face Nobles in 3rd-Place Game
Group play at the Flood-Marr Holiday Tournament continued on Saturday afternoon, as Salisbury topped Deerfield, 3-2. The Knights' 2-0-1 record matched Kimball Union Academy's for the group round, and both teams had identical figures of 11 goals scored and 6 goals against. The two schools tied, 2-2, when they played each other on Friday.
And so it came down to a coin flip to determine which team would advance to the championship game. Fate smiled on KUA, and the Wildcats (8-1-1) will face off against Westminster for the title on Sunday. Salisbury will play Noble & Greenough in the 3rd-place game.
Saturday's win gives the Knights a 7-0-1 record heading into the final round of the Flood-Marr, Salisbury's best start in several years.
