Allison Akers extended the SHC advantage to 2-0 with a goal in the 62nd minute off assists by Katie Pendergast and Sarah Uptmor.
Jade Beason iced the contest in the 70th minute with a nifty 1-on-2 goal in which she outmaneuvered a Huntingdon defender and then beat the keeper to her right side.
SHC keeper Emma Pitchford of Ridgeland, Miss., picked up her fourth shutout of the year without facing a shot attempt while Huntingdon's Jenny Burnash made 11 saves against 24 Badger shot attempts.
The Badgers took nine corner kicks and didn't allow Huntingdon (4-9-2) a single corner play.
