Salisbury Defense Sharper, but Hotchkiss Blanks Knights
The burgers and dogs were grilled to a turn, the hot cider took the chill out of a fair fall afternoon, and the Salisbury fan base was out in force on Monday afternoon at Wachtmeister Field, as the Knights squared off against cross-town rival Hotchkiss. Despite a solid defensive effort, Salisbury could not find the net, and Hotchkiss walked off with a 2-0 win, spoiling the otherwise festive conditions. The shutout was the second consecutive blanking for the 1-6 Knights, who fell to Avon Old Farms, 5-0, on Saturday. Salisbury did flash some offensive spark, bringing the crowd to its feet on several occasions with drives deep into the Bearcat defensive zone, but each foray was turned aside.
After an off-day Wednesday, the Knights will return to action Saturday at home against The Gunnery. Opening kick-off is slated for 2:30.
