Wheaton College (IL) put the first dent on No. 18 Luther's loss column posting a 1-0 victory. The Thunder kept their streak alive of never losing to the Norse, that has now run to six matches, dating back to 1997.

The Norse out shot the Thunder 18-8, but could not get one past goalkeeper Hasten Biddlecome, who was credited with seven saves.
The loss gives Luther an overall record of 6-1. Wheaton improved to 3-1-1.
The Norse travel to No. 4 University of St. Thomas on Tuesday, Sept. 18. This match will start in St. Paul, Minn. at 4:00 p.m.
