  • Northwood nearly broke through with the equalizer when Christina Medici headed down a Jessie Piper corner, but a save by Halle Stork and a goal line clearance kept the score at 2-1 in favor of the hosts. 

  • The Timberwolves' equalizer finally came right at the 85 minute mark as Jessie Piper controlled a loose ball in the box and volleyed a shot into the top right corner to make the score 2-2.
