The Gustavus women’s soccer team saw their five game losing streak fall by the wayside Sunday with a 2-0 non-conference win over Luther. Samantha Engh (Sr., Wayzata, Minn.) got the Gusties on the board in the eighth minute, scoring on a header off a Liz Petersen corner kick. Engh’s goal ended a scoreless streak for Gustavus that spanned parts of seven games.

Junior Amy Larson (Bloomington, Minn.) would add an insurance goal in the 82nd minute, scoring off a breakaway for her fourth goal of the year.

The Norse out-shot the Gusties 19-15 but could not find the net. Tori Boughton (Sr., Edina, Minn.) picked up the win in goal for Gustavus notching another 11 saves.

Gustavus improves to 4-7 on the season and will return to MIAC play on Friday night when they play Macalester under the lights in St. Paul.
