When the Northwestern boys soccer team suffered its only loss of the season recently to Salisbury in a nonleague contest, Tiger head coach Nate Hunsicker hoped it would give his team a shot in the arm for the postseason.
There was no doubt it did as J.D. Haaf scored two first half goals and the defense did the rest in handing the Falcons a 2-0 loss in a Colonial League semifinal played at Northern Lehigh.
“The loss to them definitely motivated us,” said Hunsicker. “It certainly would have been nice to go 18-0, but 17-1 is nothing to sneeze at either.
