Northwestern’s Brittany Caserma scored her fourth goal of the season at the 7: 47-minute mark to take the lead, 1-0.
NSU continued the offensive pressure recording 20 first-half shots and five corner kicks.
Southern was not able to get anything going on the offensive side, recording no shots in the first half.

Eriken recorded 14 saves.
Southern was outshot 38-0, NSU held an 8-0 corner kick advantage.
