Trailing by one in the third, Abby Christian drove a base hit down the line scoring Sherry Huber to pull the Norse even at one apiece.  Elisa Smith's RBI single in the 4th gave Luther the lead for good as pitcher Lexy Determan shut the door in the 7th.

The Norse are one of eight teams to advance to the NCAA Championships in Salem, Virginia, from May 20-24.
