By winning two games at home over the weekend, the Luther College men's soccer team has qualified for the Division III Round of 16 this coming weekend--the second year in a row and the fifth time in school history the men's soccer team has earned a spot in the Round of 16.

Luther beat Prinicipia College on Saturday, 5-1, then won in a shoot out against Wisconsin-Superior on Sunday.

As a result, the Norse will play Ohio Wesleyan in the next round, which will be held at North Park University in Chicago starting Friday at 1:00 p.m.. With a victory on Friday, the Norse would play the winner of the Friday game between Calvin College and North Park. North Park will be the host and the matches will be played on Friday and Saturday, November 22nd and 23rd.
