The North Marion boys soccer team lost a 1-0 contest at home last week to La Salle prep in an early-season match between top 10 programs.
The No. 10 Huskies hosted the No. 7 Falcons Thursday. North Marion held its own against La Salle, but the Falcons defense, which has surrendered just two goals all season, handed the Huskies their first shutout loss since Sept. 22, 2011.
Earlier in the week, the Huskies played their final non-conference game of the season, handing 5A Silverton a 3-2 loss.
North Marion travels to Estacada Tuesday, followed by a home game against Molalla Thursday.
