led the way with assists on both Hawk goals.
Junior Emily Tilton (Naperville, IL)
opened the scoring in the 23rd minute. Ward set her up for a
one-time finish from just outside the box. Sophomore Lauren Capuano (St. Charles, MO)

for the game with only one on goal. Illinois Tech registered ten shots for the
game with seven on frame.
