DECORAH (KWWL) -

 Luther trailed by a run late, but forced extra innings to defeat St. Thomas 3-2 in 8 innings. The win moved the Norse in to Sunday's NCAA regional final against Linfield.

Anna Strien scored on a sacrifice fly in the top of the 7th to tie the game at 2 apiece, forcing extra innings. Kristen Winter drive in a run on a groundout in the top of the 8th that would turn into the game winner.

Luther enters Sunday's final out of the winners' bracket, meaning they need a single win to advance out of the regional. Linfield would have to defeat the Norse twice.
