Though they played out to a nearly identical match-up statistically, the Central College women’s soccer team came up just short on the scoreboard last night, falling 1-0 to Luther College in overtime.

Lightning delays pushed the game back two hours, and after ninety minutes of back-and-forth action, neither team could take the upper hand; but just 16 seconds into overtime the Norse fired the game-winning goal to leave Pella with the win.

The loss drops the Central women’s soccer team to 9-5 overall and 2-3 in the Iowa Conference. The Dutch have the weekend off and will travel to Indianola next Wednesday to take on Simpson College.
