On a very wet night under the lights, UW-Eau Claire defeated Luther 1-0. The Blugolds Hannah Schaetzel scored the game winner on a one timer off a cross from Krista Koenig at 84:17. The goal was her first of the year.
Both teams had opportunities to score through out the evening. Luther tallied 20 shots but could not get the ball past UWEC keeper Anna Sveiven who recorded seven saves. Eau Claire was efficient as it was credited with seven shots and five were inside the frame.
The loss gives Luther an overall record of 3-5-1. Eau Claire improved to 7-3-0. The win also levels this series to 9-9-1.
Luther returns to American Rivers Conference action this Saturday, Oct. 5. The Norse will travel to Cedar Rapids, Iowa and play Coe College at 3:30 p.m.
