TONIGHT/Thursday:Southeast Guilford(4-1) at Salisbury(1-4) with a 7pm kickoff….
There were a few adjustments to the Salisbury football schedule Wednesday.
The school announced the Hornets’ game against Southeast Guilford was moved from 7:30 p.m. Friday to 7 p.m. Thursday because of the strong possibility of inclement weather.
The National Weather Service says the area could get hit with showers and thunderstorms Friday afternoon and evening. Showers and thunderstorms are predicted to hit the area before 8 p.m. and to continue throughout the night. The chance for precipitation is 70 percent. The decision to move the game ahead was made before 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Salisbury head coach Ryan Crowder said there was talk of moving the game to Monday, but that would give both teams short weeks to prepare ahead of their conference openers. Crowder said neither team wanted a short week, effectively two days, ahead of a league game.
Southeast Guilford(4-1) presents a challenge to the Salisbury Hornets(1-4).
“They’re going to run some different offenses and different defenses than what we’ve seen this year,” Crowder said.
The Falcons work out of a Wing-T offense. Styles Jennings and Zakey Stevenson lead the rushing attack with 516 and 407 yards rushing, respectively. The two have scored three touchdowns apiece. Quarterback Bubba Craven has run for just shy of 300 yards and six scores this year.
Only once this year has Southeast Guilford failed to win a game by at least two touchdowns.
