Northwest U Shuts Out Corban, Maintains Hold on First Place
KIRKLAND, WA – The Northwest University Eagles recorded their 6th straight shutout as they blanked Corban 2-0 in CCC play this afternoon. NU improves to 5-0 in conference play and holds on to the top spot in the CCC with 15 points.
Acacia Johnson (Puyallup, Wash.) scored the first Eagle goal, her 12th of the season, in the 44th minute as she took a through ball from Tatyana Reveles (Oxnard, Calif.) beat a defender on the left side and finished from 12 yards out for the score. NU would take a 1-0 lead into halftime.
In the second half, a Corban foul in the penalty box gave Kelsey Greene (Sherwood, Ore.) a PK which she put past the Warrior keeper and into the right corner to put NU up 2-0 at the 63:24 mark. Corban would have 9 shots in the half, but the stingy NU defense and three saves by Patty Hughes in goal would preserve the shutout.
Northwest U (7-5-1, 5-0 CCC) held a slight 12-10 edge on shots and had 9 corner kicks to Corban’s (7-6-2, 2-3-1 CCC) 7. NU’s Patty Hughes (Kalispell, Mont.) earns her 6th straight shutout making 4 saves in goal for the game.
