Time:3:00 pm
Results:1-1 2OT

Decorah hasn't seen any significant rain for almost two weeks. Schedule a home soccer match and what happens? For 110 minutes a combination of mist, turned to rain, turned to mist, and back to rain fell on the Valley. Fortunately the wind was not blowing so the estimated 75 fans that braved the weather only had to deal with trying to stay dry.

On the pitch, Luther and St. Benedict played to a 1-1 double overtime draw. The Bennies took a 1-0 lead at 80:42 when Rosie McGinty scored her first goal of the season, off a cross from Megan Thompson. Four minutes later, Megan Munger drove in her first collegiate goal, off a cross to the center of the box from Hailey Sanchez.

Luther's Kenney Bergren was credited with seven saves, while the duo of Kaylin Thulin and Paige Kahlmeyer combined to make eight saves for St. Benedict. 

Box Score

Following today's match, Luther is 1-2-1. St. Benedict is now 2-1-1.
