Connors was full of praise for his team. "They never gave up and fought hard. I'm very proud of how they played."
Salem (13-2) moves on to the semifinals Tuesday at 5 p.m. at Exeter. Merrimack finished 7-7-1. Winnacunnet 3, Bishop Guertin 0: At Hampton, top-ranked Winnacunnet advanced to the semifinals and improved to 15-0.
