DECORAH, IOWA - The University of Dubuque Women's Soccer team went on the road for the first time this year since Iowa Conference play began. The Spartans were unable to get the offense going in the 2-0 loss to Luther College, who is undefeated in the IIAC. UD and Luther were tied at 0-0 at halftime. The sixth ranked regionally Spartans are 8-3-0 overall and 1-2-0 in the IIAC.

UD had five corner kicks in the first 14 minutes of action but were unable to capitalize on the scoring opportunities. The Spartans defense stopped both shots on goal and a total ten shots in the scoreless period.
