MIDLAND, MICH. – The Northwood University falls 1-0 to Ferris State University on Friday afternoon (October 2).
Ferris State was the first to get on the board with a goal at 14:16. FSU maintained possession for a majority of the opening period to take a 1-0 lead into the half. The Bulldogs were the better team, despite the Timberwolves increasing the offensive pressure throughout the second period. Unfortunately, NU was unable to net any of the five shots taken in the second half.
For the match, the Bulldogs out-shot Northwood (15-8) and registered all five of the corner kicks taken. Keeper Julie Shields (Berkley, Mich. / Berkley) was key to keeping the score at 1-0, as she registered five saves in the loss.
