Kate Allen and Caroline Dagley each found of the back of the net Friday night as women's soccer closed its exhibition schedule with a 2-0 win over DePaul at Lakeside Field.
Allen, who led NU in 2010 with six goals scored, got things started in the first half off a pass from freshman Katie Landgrebe. Both players hail from Ohio and are expected to be major factors in Northwestern's attack this season. Landgrebe scored NU's lone goal in its first exhibition game on Monday.
Another freshman -- Lake Forest, Ill., native Georgia Waddle -- picked up the assist on Dagley's goal in the second half.
Anna Cassell and Sam Hatfield combined in goal to shutout the Blue Demons.
"I was very pleased with the effort we put forth tonight," Northwestern Head Coach Stephanie Foster said after the game. "We have made excellent progress from Monday to Friday in our first week of fall camp."
The 'Cats open the regular season at Marquette on Aug. 21. Northwestern will host Cincinnati, Dayton and Loyola for the Lakeside Classic on Aug. 26-28 to open the home portion of the 2011 season.
