Caitlyn Mossman helped out on North’s 10th of the early season and Annie Walsh (1g) put Boston in double digits and a five-goal lead, 10-5.
Madison Waters (1g) ended the uprising to make it a four-goal difference but Medjid countered. USC was not giving up and Katie Ramsay (1g) and Kelsey Huff (1g,1a) seemed to jumpstart a comeback.
Although all it did was poke the bear ad Boston blew it open when Belle Smith (1g), Cassidy Weeks (1g) converted a North pass, and North would get her fourth of the day to put the exclamation mark on the 14-8 final.
