Football looks to extend win streak vs. No. Lehigh

Wednesday, November 4, 2015 by CHUCK HIXSONSPECIAL TO THE PRESS in Sports

Rivalry games bring out the best of both teams, so you can never be quite sure what to expect. With that in mind, the Northwestern Tigers (6-2) are hoping that the numbers continue the way they’ve been recently in their rivalry with Northern Lehigh (4-4).

Over the past two seasons, Northwestern has had the upper-hand, beating the Bulldogs by a combined score of 70-6, including a 42-6 win last season at Tiger Stadium.

Prior to those two wins though, Northern Lehigh ruled the roost, with their last win coming in 2012 when they beat the Tigers 57-19

In Thursday night’s Colonial League championship game between Northwestern and Southern Lehigh, both teams played with the intensity and skill seen from programs that have been in such a situation before.

The fourth-seeded Lady Tigers were, after all, going for their third straight league title and coming off a District 11 crown and an appearance in the state semifinals.

Though a perennial contender and a mainstay in the playoffs, the No. 3 seeded Spartans were seeking their first league championship since the spring of 2011.

Northwestern field hockey coach Lissa Opolsky was a high school and college goalkeeper, so she knows the pressure that comes in a tight game. She withstood that pressure as a player and seems to have passed that ability down to her players, who came up big when they needed it most to grab a 3-1 win over Northern Lehigh in last week’s season finale. The win clinched a spot in the District 11 Class AA playoffs, which begin next week.

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.
