Gameday Game Recap

MOORHEAD, Minn. (9/24/08)-- For the third straight game and the fifth time in the past six games the Concordia defense didn't allow a goal and shut down the opposing team's offense. On Wednesday the Cobbers came through with a 1-0 win over St. Kate's to remain unbeaten in 2008 and unbeaten in league play. CC is now 6-0-3 overall and 2-0-2 in the MIAC. The win also adds to their school record total for unbeaten games to start the season. Concordia is now unbeaten in their first nine games of the year.

St. Kate's sees their two-game winning streak come to an end. The Wildcats are now 5-3-1 overall and 2-2-0 in league play.

Concordia started the game by taking advantage of their speed on the front line by playing balls into space behind the St. Kate's defenders. The Cobbers pressed the Wildcat net early and came away with a 15-2 advantage in shots on goal in the period. Concordia finally got on the scoreboard just before the half-hour mark when sophomore midfielder Abby Habein played forward Sam Johnson through on the left side of the CSC defense. Johnson turned the corner and took the ball toward the Wildcat endline. She then hit a hard pass on the ground to the far post that found the waiting foot of senior Maia Johnson who calmly tapped the ball into the open net for the lone goal of the game. For Maia Johnson it was her second goal of the season. Sam Johnson added to her team-leading point total on the play. She recorded her first assist of the season and now has 15 points on the year.

The Concordia midfield choked off the St. Kate's attack for the remainder of the first half. The Wildcats then came out in the second half with a renewed purpose and started to win the battles in the middle of the field. They were able to use these victories to play the ball onto the CC backline and come up with sustained attacks. CSC only had one shot in the final 45 minutes but had several balls played through the Concordia penalty area that were never met for a shot.

In the end, the CC defense once again held an opponent off the board by being resilient in their final third. They never allowed the Wildcats any time to get an open shot when they got the ball towards the Cobber penalty area.

Concordia ended up outshooting St. Kate's 19-3 and held a 7-1 edge in shots on goal. CC had five corner kicks as opposed to only two for the Wildcats. Cobber goalie Britt Reiersgord once again controlled the penalty area and came away with her sixth shutout of the season. She also added to her school record career shutout total. She now has 34 blankings in her three-plus year career. St. Kate's goalie Kaylee Schmitt made six saves for the 90 minutes.

The Cobbers will put their unbeaten streak on the line when they play at St. Mary's on Saturday, Sept. 27 at 4 p.m.
