Tiffin took the lead at 13:41 when Ashley Davis caught a pass from Shelly Rogers and shot it past NMU goal keeper Dana Bush from 12 yards out. Lauren Bowyer scored an unassisted breakaway goal at 74:23 to make it 2-0.

NMU is 9-5-5 on the season and the Dragons are 12-4-3. Tiffin outshot the Wildcats 15-4 and had nine corner kicks to the ‘Cats one.
