The opening of the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) schedule was an important one for the Scarlet Hawks, as the Illinois Tech women’s soccer team (3-5, 0-1 NACC) traveled to Dominican University (7-1, 2-0 NACC) for a rematch of last season’s NACC Tournament Championship. The host Starts bested the Scarlet Hawks in a low-scoring affair.
How it Happened
