Preview: East Davidson at Salisbury

Time: 7:30 p.m.
Records: East Davidson 4-6, 2-2 CCC; Salisbury 8-2, 3-1 CCC
Series: It’s been hard-fought, with the Hornets holding an 11-7 lead. East’s tally includes a 2008 forfeit after Salisbury won 60-0 on the field. SHS coach Joe Pinyan is 6-2 against the Golden Eagles.
Last meeting: Salisbury won 42-14 on the road in 2010 with Dominique Dismuke putting up five touchdowns. The Golden Eagles will not be thrilled to see Dismuke again.
Last week: East Davidson picked up its first CCC win on the field by pounding West Davidson 19-0. Salisbury suffered a disappointing 34-27 loss at Thomasville.
Next week: With the aid of the forfeit victory it acquired this week against Central Davidson, East Davidson could get into the playoffs. Salisbury will try to start another playoff run in the 2AA bracket.
Game notes: The Hornets can’t wait to get back on the field after a week of negative stuff — a loss to Thomasville, plus the announcement that Central Davidson forfeits have put the Hornets in the position of needing help just to share the league title. Thomasville, which had a loss to Central Davidson turned into a win, goes into tonight 4-0, so Salisbury needs Lexington to beat Thomasville (not impossible), while it beats East Davidson in order to share the title.
Salisbury’s powerful running game averages 335 yards per game behind blockers such as Montana Harmon, Terrance McElrath and Parker McKeithan and has helped the Hornets produce 44 points per game, a sizzling, school-record pace.
Salisbury’s defense, which includes DB Daquan Robertson, allows 13 points per game.
Running back Michael Ramos was the key guy last week for coach Bryan Lingerfelt’s Golden Eagles, and the ED defense had its best outing.
