Niles and Edwardsburg combined for a total of seven shots.

Hailee Hebard had three saves for the Eddies and Avyion James four for the Vikings.

“Was an up and down game with a lot of missed opportunities,” Edwardsburg coach Brett Harring said. “Both keepers played well.”

Edwardsburg played without starter Noelle Kraus due to a leg injury.

“We came out strong the first half,” Niles coach Katie Czirr said. “We kept posession of the ball 50 percent of the time and kept it scoreless. During the second half of the game, the we increased our control of possession. There were many key plays, allowing access to shooting both inside and just outside the 18 (feet).”
