The only undefeated teams in the American Rivers Conference squared off tonight in the valley. All of the scoring took place in the first 16 minutes of the match, but unfortunately the Duhawks came out on top 2-1.
The Duhawks Abby Eriksen scored her third and fourth goals of the season at 2:27 and 6:05. Hailey Sanchez pulled the Norse to within one, scoring her sixth goal of the year at 16:18, assisted by Maggie Anderson (2) and Megan Munger (2).
In the second half neither team placed any shots on goal. The Norse applied the majority of the pressure in the second half and had some opportunities with loose balls in front of the net, but could not get a foot on them.
Kenney Bergren faced six shots on goal and was credited with four saves. The Duhawks Kaylee Cobel faced two shots on goal and made one save.
The loss gives Luther an A-R-C record of 2-1, 4-6-1 overall. Loras improved to 3-0 in league play, 9-3-1 overall.
Luther returns to action this Saturday, Oct. 12 when it will travel to Simpson College. This conference match will begin at 3:00 p.m.
