Bernard Hagevik scored his second goal of the year at the 46:34 mark from eight yards out to put Northern Illinois in front 2-0. Steve Algonzio added a late insurance goal for the Huskies at 72:19 on a header from Tony Deldin.

Sean McGinnis (Barrington, Ill./Barrington H.S.) made two stops in net during the second stanza for Valpo, while Steve Goletz made four saves while playing all 90 minutes for Northern Illinois (10-4).

NIU outshot Valpo 15-7 for the match, including a 9-2 advantage in the opening 45 minutes. The Huskies also had seven corner kick opportunities to the Crusaders' one.
