Northwestern head coach Nate Hunsicker had reason to be concerned entering what was the fourth game his team would play against Salisbury this season.
Magnifying those concerns was the fact that this one was for the District 11 Class AA championship and a berth in the PIAA State Tournament.
The Tigers, now 22-1 on the year, suffered their lone loss to the Falcons during the regular season.
Northwestern boys soccer head coach Nate Hunsicker has high praise for senior forward JD Haaf.
It was evident on Tuesday night that Hunsicker was breathing a little bit easier when Haaf had control of the ball in the Colonial League semifinal against No. 4 seed Salisbury.
Haaf scored two first half goals and the defense did the rest for the No. 1 seeded Tigers in a 2-0 win.
