Coach Pill stated, “Congratulations to Northland on their win, as it was a good hard contest. We were outplayed and got away from our fundamental beliefs to keep the ball. We had a goal called back and Northland responded better than we did. We look forward to meeting them in the NCCAA Regionals.”
Northland hauled off 29 shots with eight of them on goal. The Crusaders managed just five shots with two on net.
Junior Keeper Jonathan Knoedler (North Port, Fla.) took the loss for the Crusaders.
Maranatha will face Moody Bible on Friday at 3:00 p.m.
