#3 NU Cruises by #17 Penn State in ALC Semis

Northwestern continued to dominate draw controls, which led to Smith's fifth on the evening and 63rd score of the year, giving her sole possession of seventh place on NU's career points list with 239. Smith passed both Kathleen Kochmansky and Danielle Spencer with her six points Friday night.

Though its possessions were few and far between, Penn State worked for its second free position chance of the game midway through the second, but saw a low shot denied by Brianne LoManto in the cage. LoManto finished with five saves on the evening to anchor the NU defense.

Late goals by senior Brooke Matthews, sophomore Beatrice Conley and freshman Kelly Rich iced Northwestern's trip to Saturday's championship game, where NU will attempt to win its seventh consecutive ALC title.
