ADA -- The No. 24-ranked Ohio Northern women's found the back of the net two times as it extended its winning streak to five games Saturday afternoon at Kerscher Stadium.

The Polar Bears improve to 5-0-0 overall, while the Spartans fall to 3-2-1.

Freshman Haley Moses and senior Haley Napier each scored to lead ONU offensively.

Moses got Northern on the board early after freshman Rose Neinaber played a cross to the middle of the field and Moses beat to CWR keeper to give ONU the 1-0 lead in the 9th minute. 

Senior Missy Ward would have her shot blocked in the 74th minute before Napier gathered the rebound and found the back of the net to push the lead to 2-0.

The Spartans would get one back in the 87th minute and threaten late, but the ONU defense would close out the 2-1 victory.

"This was a great week for us," said head coach Mark Batman. "We had two great wins this week against two quality teams in our region."

Freshman Meagan Grierson recorded one save and improved to 5-0-0 overall.

Northern outshot the Spartans by a 16-5 margin and won the corner kick battle by a 4-3 margin.

The Polar Bears will return to action Tuesday evening as they play host to Wooster at Kerscher Stadium at 7 pm.
