Faber lifts Northeastern into CAA tourney semifinals
But there’s no doubt he’s the No. 1 guy now.
Saving his best for the end of the season, Faber has stopped 55 of the last 56 shots he’s faced to post a 2-0-1 record in his last three starts.
He anchored Northeastern’s 2-0 victory over Elon in the quarterfinals of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament, avenging a 5-0 loss earlier this season.
Faber, of West High fame, was coming off a 2-1 victory over James Madison and a 0-0 draw against Hofstra when he saved a season-high 10 shots on goal.
The 6-foot junior is 9-9-4 in 26 career starts.
Faber looks to continue his good run against Delaware in the CAA semifinals Saturday.
