North dominates the first half

The Huskies go on the attack as Noah Radeke wins the ball back from Waubonsie and goes for goal. His shot hits the crossbar and Warriors goalkeeper Sebastian Herrera is able to get to it and the match remains scoreless.

A little later on, the Huskies now lead 1-0 as they push to add another goal. The Warriors try to clear the ball away, but it goes right to Huskie Josh Pedersen and he rips his shot into the right corner of the net to put the Huskies ahead 2-0. What a strike from 30-plus yards away!

The Warriors are looking to respond to get back into the match. Lachlan Ladd gets to the ball and blasts his shot from a distance, but Huskie goalkeeper Jack Bouska is able to scoop it up for the save.

Still in the first half and the Huskies aren’t done yet. Radeke has possession and he puts in some fancy footwork and delivers a cross inside the box. Herrera, the Warrior keeper, tries to catch the ball but can’t secure it and Niko Ladas is there on the rebound to bury it home for the Huskies. They take a commanding 3-0 lead going into halftime over the Warriors.
