Gameday Game Recap

ST. PAUL, Minn. (11/05/08)-- (Recap courtesy of UST SID) Vanessa Kowalski scored the game's only goal at 105:23 to give fourth-seed Concordia-Moorhead a 1-0 victory over top-seed St. Thomas in MIAC women's soccer play Wednesday afternoon at UST's South Field.

The Cobbers (12-4-3) advance to Saturday's MIAC finals at Carleton against the second-seeded Knights (14-5), who won 3-0 at home Wednesday over Macalester. Concordia won its third MIAC soccer playoff game in a row and is now unbeaten in the last five playoff games over three seasons. CC avenged a 3-0 loss to the Tommies on Oct. 4 in Moorhead.

No. 11-ranked St. Thomas (14-1-4), the conference regular-season champ, had its 19-game unbeaten streak end, dating back to last season. The Tommies will await Monday's announcement to see if they receive a berth into the NCAA playoff field.

Cobber Sam Johnson took a pass in the right side of the box, drew the goalie and passed to Kowalski on the left, who buried the game-winner.

St. Thomas had a 6-3 advantage in corner kicks but the Cobbers had a 10-5 advantge in shots on net. Amanda Domeier had nine saves in goal over 105:23 for UST, while Britt Reiersgord had four saves for the Cobbers.

Concordia had an early goal disallowed on an offsides violation. The Cobbers hit a post at 57:00, then a rebound shot sailed over the bar. Moments later, St. Thomas hit the crossbar with a shot. In the first overtime, the Tommies hit the crossbar again on a near miss.

In two days thus far in MIAC playoff action in volleyball and men's and women's soccer, the road team had pulled off upsets in four of the six matches.

The Cobbers will now play in their fifth straight MIAC playoff championship game. CC is the two-time defending playoff champion and will play at Carleton on Saturday, Nov. 8 at 11:30 a.m. The two teams met in the 2006 conference championship game with Concordia prevailing with a shootout victory. The winner of the game on Saturday will receive the league's automatic berth into the NCAA playoffs.
