Luther kicked off the 2013 campaign with a 2-0 victory over No. 8 Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. It was a homecoming victory for Head Coach Chris Garcia-Prats who played his collegiate soccer at Trinity.
The victory over the Tigers was the second for the Norse. In 1994 Luther defeated Trinity in San Antonio 2-1.
Logan Martell scored the game winner at 18:39 assisted by J W Slauson. Twenty minutes later, Clay Walker scored an insurance goal assisted by James Garcia-Prats.
Peter Wright went the distance in front of the nets and turned away seven shots on goal en route to the shut out.
The Norse will wrap up their trip to Texas with a match against Southwestern University at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow evening.
