The St. Norbert College women’s soccer team survived some second-half pressure and hung on for a 1-0 Midwest Conference victory over Lawrence University on Sunday at Whiting Field West.
St. Norbert (12-3-3, 7-1-2 MWC) got the game’s only goal on Zoe Kurth’s header in the 35th minute off a corner kick from Jaci Kulow.
Lawrence senior goalkeeper Cassie Burke kept the Vikings (4-13-0, 3-7-0) within striking distance with some stellar play in the net. Burke finished with 10 saves in her final collegiate contest.
Lawrence put the pressure on late, and St. Norbert goalkeeper Sarah Platzer was forced to make a save on Sarah Tiano’s shot with four minutes left. Platzer finished with four saves. The Vikings had the ball inside the St. Norbert penalty box when time expired.
