Posted: Updated:
DECORAH (KWWL) -

Luther college came up one win short of advancing to the College World Series dropping a pair of games to Illinois Wesleyan on the final day of the Super Regionals.

The Norse appeared to have a shot to close it out in the first game when Ashley Burrows drew a bases loaded walk to take an 8-7 lead in to the bottom of the 7th inning. Illinois Wesleyan however tied it on an RBI double. Minutes later, Maggie Graham drove a base hit in to right field scoring Katie Caulfield for a walk-off win.

In the second game, Luther couldn't figure out Illinois Wesleyan pitcher Jenna Noland. The Norse managed just one hit in the second game, falling 3-0 as the season came to an end.

The Norse finish the 2016 campaign at 40-5 overall.
