Paige Coolman made 25 saves, tying her season high, but Huntington North was unable to extend its season, finishing at 7-9-1.
Kelsey Wendlandt and Ari Nelson each scored in the first half to give Homestead a 2-0 advantage going into the break.
In the second half, on a tired Lady Vikings defense, the Spartan seniors got two goals apiece to push the game to its final tally.
Homestead, undefeated on the season at 16-0-1, met Columbia City in a game to determine the sectional crown on Saturday, Oct. 6, at 3 p.m.
