Nationally ranked #16 Loras College scored two goals in the first 12 minutes en route to a 4-1 victory over Luther this evening here in Decorah. The first half ended 3-0 that included a Norse own goal.
Elly Arend scored her sixth goal of the season in the 87th minute, assisted by Paige Ofstedahl (2) to break-up what looked like a Loras shutout.
