Luther advanced to the semifinals of the 2014 Iowa Conference Tournament thanks to a 3-1 victory over Central College tonight here in Decorah.
Lucas Beato (7) scored the lone goal in the first 45 minutes of action on a penalty kick at 11:04. Jon Gednalske (12) drove in what proved to be the game winner at 60:22 assisted by Josh Galvin. Gednalske then assisted on a goal by Natty Maynard (2) at 61:41.
Central's Aleksander Glavas removed the shutout with a goal in the 88th minute, his fourth of the year.
The victory over the Dutch was the second for the Norse this season. One week ago today, Luther defeated Central 3-0 in Pella.
