DECORAH, Iowa - The University of Dubuque men's soccer team bounced back after just their second loss of the season on Saturday night to win a road victory against the Luther College Norse 2-1.

The Spartans were held to five shots while the hosts were scattering 30 shots in the loss. Keeper Luis Gallardo would be kept busy as he stopped 11 shots on goal, allowing just one goal at the 67:46 mark in the second half. The host Norse led in corner kicks 12-3, but the Spartans staunch defense kept them out of the net.
