Elly Arend scored her first goal of the season and it could not have come at a better time, as nationally ranked No. 22 Luther defeated UW-La Crosse 1-0.
Arend found the back of the Eagles net in the 88th minute assisted by Melisse Chasse. Chasse's assist was her sixth of the season.
Lauren Thormodsgard and Molly Hilgart once again split time in front of the Norse nets posting the fourth shutout of the season.
Luther out shot La Crosse 14-8 and forced Eagles goalkeeper Ashley Tracy to make five saves prior to the Arend goal.
The win gives Luther an overall record of 7-0 and its best start in school history. The Norse return to action on Sunday, Sept. 21 when they will travel to Carleton College for a 1:00 p.m. match.
