CARY, N.C. (CBS) -- The Northwestern women's lacrosse team is headed back to the NCAA title game after beating Florida on Friday.

By halftime, Northwestern was up 7-6 – with first-half hat tricks by Scane and Maggi Hall.

Northwestern was still up one goal by the end of the third, with a score of 10-9.

The start of the fourth quarter was held up with a weather delay. But when the game resumed, the Wildcats outscored the Gators 5-2, and went on to win 15-11.
