Blugolds blank Luther

Hannah Schaetzel scored the game’s only goal as the UW-Eau Claire women’s soccer team blanked Luther College 1-0 on Wednesday in Iowa.

Schaetzel scored the winner with time running out, finding the back of the net in the 84th minute. Blugolds keeper Anna Sveiven made seven saves to post the shutout.


Wednesday’s McDonell volleyball article incorrectly stated that the Macks were in Division 3 and were eliminated by Clayton last season. McDonell is in Division 4 and were knocked out by Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran 25-20, 23-25, 26-24, 25-17 last season. The Leader-Telegram regrets this error.
