Northwest Washington led 12-8 early on but the Red Raiders scored seven in a row and pushed the lead to 22-16 with 10 minutes gone by in the first half. The Eagles fought their way back after a timeout and held a 30-29-halftime lead.
Down three in the second half, Northwestern grabbed its final lead (45-42) after consecutive three-point plays by Ryan Stock and Walker Seim.
