Gameday Game Recap

MOORHEAD, Minn. (9/20/08)-- Concordia claimed a critical conference victory over Carleton on Saturday in Moorhead. The Cobbers scored a goal in each half to come away with a 2-0 win in a battle of teams unbeaten in MIAC play in 2008. CC sophomore Sam Johnson continued her recent tear as she scored both goals - her second consecutive game with two goals.

The win also keeps Concordia unbeaten overall on the year and extends their school record to eight games without a loss to start the season. The Cobbers are now 5-0-3 in all games and 1-0-2 in conference play. The Knights fall for the first time in three games and for the first time in league play. Carleton is now 4-3 overall and 2-1 in the MIAC.

After playing their first two conference games to double overtime ties and struggling to score key goals, the Cobbers have broken out of their scoring slump by posting back-to-back two-goal games against quality opponents. On Tuesday, Johnson scored twice and CC beat regional foe St. Scholastica 2-0 and then she repeated the feat on Saturday in helping Concordia win their first MIAC game of the year.

The Cobbers got on the board just past the 10-minute mark of the first half when senior Maia Johnson won possession off of a second ball near the Carleton penalty area. She then threaded a precision perfect pass to Johnson who was running through the back of the Knight defense. Johnson took one peak at Carleton goalie Yusi He and then buried a left-footed shot in the right side of the net.

The goal allowed Concordia to sit back and let the game come to the CC defense. Neither team was able to get another goal in the first half with the best chance coming off the foot of Maia Johnson who hit a 25-yard shot that dipped over He and looked to be going under the crossbar before He reached back and touched the ball over the top of the net.

The second half started in the same fashion as the first with CC holding off an early Knight charge before taking a goal around the 10-minute mark. Sam Johnson manufactured the second Cobber goal all on her own. She took a throw-in at the top of the box from the right side line and then turned her defender before pounding home a laser into the far side netting. The goal was her team-leading seventh of the season.

From that point on, the Cobber defense held off Carleton and made sure the Knights didn't get the crucial first goal of the game. The Knights had two golden chances in the latter stages. The first was off of a flick in the middle part of the Cobber defense end that sprung a breakaway. Unfortunately for Carleton, a shot never materialized off the chance.  The second opportunity came late in the game when a Knight attacker found herself all alone in front of goal on the left side of the penalty area but her shot went right at CC goalie Britt Reiersgord.

For the game, Carleton outshot Concordia 16-10. That total was helped by a second half where the Knights outshot CC 12-4 - most of which came after CC had started to protect their two-goal lead. Reiersgord made five saves in the game for the Cobbers to earn her fifth win of the year and her fifth shutout of the season. He also made five stops in the game as Concordia held a 7-5 edge in shots on goal.

The Cobbers will return to play on Wednesday, Sept. 24 when they host St. Kate's at 4 p.m.
