NATCHITOCHES, La. - The LSU Shreveport women's soccer team dropped a 3-0 decision to the Northwestern State Lady Demons on Monday night at the NSU Soccer Complex.

The Lady Demons added the final goal of the night as Rebecca Furlow hit the crossbar on a free kick and the rebound found Chelsea Schaefer during the 86th minute as she placed it in the back of the net.
LSUS' chances were few but their best chance in the second half came when Heather McCutchen sent a pass over the NSU defenders to find Ella Galvin who's shot went high with 25 minutes to play.
The Lady Pilots (2-3) took the first few shots of the contest but it did not take NSU very long to organize their attack as the outshot the Lady Pilots 18-4 during the first half.
