Gameday Game Recap:

WHITEWATER, Wis. (10/22/07)-- If you would have asked Concordia women's soccer coach Dan Weiler at the beginning of the year if he thought his team would be able to win 11 straight games in 2007 and post more wins as the team did during their record setting year in 2006, even the ever-optimistic Weiler might have had a hard time accepting the fact. However, after the Cobber's 1-0 win at UW-Whitewater on Monday, that is exactly what has happened, as CC has now won a program-record 11 straight games and upped their overall season record to 13-2-1.

Concordia bettered the old mark of 10 straight wins set by the 2005 squad and has now won one more game than last year's team that won the MIAC regular season and playoff titles and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. The Cobbers are now 13-2-1 on the year and have a legitimate chance to break the school record for wins in a season. The 2005 team that posted the 10 straight victories finished with a 15-4-0 overall record to set the bar for wins in a single season.

The loss for UW-Whitewater breaks their five-game wining streak and drops their overall record to 11-7-1 on the year.

Against the Warhawks on Monday, Concordia was able to dictate the pace of play through the midfield and hold off Whitewater through stellar defensive play. CC had nothing to show for in the first half other than a superior 8-1 advantage in shots.

Not wanting to relive their nail-biting win over UW-River Falls a week earlier when the Cobbers were unable to score in regulation and had to wait until the final second of the first overtime period to secure the win, CC pressed forward in the early stages of the second half to find a goal.

Their efforts were rewarded in the 60th minute when a Maia Johnson centering pass found the foot of freshman Susan Obermiller, who in turn, found the back of the net for her eighth goal of the season. She now has 20 points in her first year which ties her for the team lead.

The Concordia defense took over from that point, limiting the Warhawks to only three total shots in the game and two in the second half. Cobber goalie Britt Reiersgord was called upon to make only one save in earning her seventh shutout of the season. She also lowered her goals against average to a paltry 0.41 on the year.

UW-Whitewater goalie Amy Bailey turned aside nine shots in the game as Concordia outshot the Warhawks 10-1 in the game in shots on goal and 18-3 in total shots.

Concordia will now turn their attention to securing their second consecutive MIAC regular season championship. The Cobbers have two games left in conference play and with a pair of wins will earn the regular season title. The even better news for CC is that both games are at home where Concordia has 12-game unbeaten streak against MIAC opponents. The Cobbers will host Bethel on Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 1:30 p.m. and then host second-place St. Ben's on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 1 p.m. in a game that could determine the MIAC championship and home field advantage in the playoffs.
