A goal by the Duhawks Katie Truesdale in the 20th minute proved to be the difference in this battle for first place. Following a foul on the Norse, Truesdale drove the ball into the upper left corner of the Norse net for her 10th goal of the season.
The Norse out shot the Duhawks 18-5 but could not get the ball past goalkeeper Hannah Wilson who was credited with eight saves.
The loss snapped Luther's four-game win streak and dropped the Norse into fourth place in the Iowa Conference standings with a mark of 3-2, 13-2 overall. Loras remains in a tie for first place with University of Dubuque with a record of 4-1. The Duhawks are 9-6 overall. Following today's action, Loras, Dubuque, Luther and Central have all secured a spot in the six-team Iowa Conference Tournament.
The Norse will return to action at Central one week from today. Start time in Pella is slated for 12:30 p.m.
