Cobbers win Power Bowl III
By Blair Sander - Sports Editor

The Cobbers electrified the Dragons despite the lack of bad weather at the Power Bowl this year.

A perfect day and stands packed with fans helped set the stage for Concordia’s 18-10 win over Minnesota State University-Moorhead at Power Bowl III last Saturday.

Although MSU-Moorhead was first up on the scoreboard with a 42-yard field goal, Concordia was not far behind in setting a 6-3 lead as sophomore Ryan Hebrink (Sacred Heart, Minn.) threw a 17-yard touchdown to senior Joel Ferrie (Moorhead, Minn.) early in the second quarter. Then with only a few minutes left in the half, the Dragons took a 10-6 lead with an 8-yard run.

“We were a little shaky at first, but once we got going and took a few hits, things went really great,” Hebrink said.

As halftime rolled in, Concordia trailed MSUM 7 to 9 in first downs and 139 to 160 in offensive yards. However, the Cobbers were not to be beaten as they held the lead throughout the second half.
 
“I thought that the game went well and was a good, physical game,” Ferrie said. “It was a good game to start out the season.” 

During the third quarter, the Cobbers brought the score up to 12-10 over the Dragons, again with a pass from Hebrink to Ferrie. 
 
There was no more scoring until about 7 minutes were left in the game. Again Hebrink used his arm to bullet an 8-yard touchdown pass to junior Jake Olson (Crookston, Minn.) to increase the lead to 18-10. Fans jumped up in the stands with hopes of another touchdown as sophomore Robert Clark (Seeley Lake, Mo.) took off in a 55-yard breakaway near the end of the game. Time ran out before Concordia was able to score again, but Clark was awarded the Power Surge Award for his amazing play, and the Cobbers walked away with the Power Bowl trophy.

“It was a great first game,” Hebrink said, “It sets the tone and [there is] a lot of good to come. Everybody is going to feed off each other and get better.”

During Family Weekend this Saturday, the Cobbers go up against St. Thomas. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.

Women’s soccer team off to a great start
Kara Murray - The Concordian

With MIAC play looming in the future, the Concordia women’s soccer team is off to a bold 3-1 start.

The Luther tournament last weekend allowed the Cobbers a chance to gain more experience. Concordia played strong and secured a third place finish.

“We are really excited to see what we can do with the talent we have,” junior Meghan Hansen said. “This has been a good starting point for the season.”

Concordia faced off against their host Luther College on Saturday of the tournament and fell 4-0. Luther scored two points in each half and out-shot the Cobbers 15-6. Luther’s first score came early, a mere 3:12 into the game.
 
“Luther played well,” Hansen said. “They just came out strong.” On Sunday, the Cobbers again went into action, but this time with better results. In their game against Morningside, Concordia topped them 2-1, while facing mix-ups due to injuries.

Junior Kendra Lee (Jamestown, ND) scored both goals for the Cobbers. Junior Amy Jo Walthall (Staples, Minn.) added the assist. Morningside rallied to get back into the game with a goal 79:04 minutes into the game. During the game, the Cobbers had to revamp their strategy to replace some injured players.  It was a confidence builder that the team could face the changes and still come together to pull off the win.

“Although we had to make changes, we still played strong and came out with the victory,” Hansen said.

The Cobbers were scheduled to play a game against Crookston this last week, but the game was cancelled due to Crookston’s lack of players. Now, with Family Weekend off, the Cobbers have a chance to focus themselves for the rest of the coming season. The next match-up is their opener in MIAC play traveling to St. Catherine’s Sept. 18. Then they face MSU-Moorhead on Sept.
20 at home. 

“Our players are closer off the field,, which helps on the field with the trust in playing,” Hansen said. “We are stronger this year than we were last year at this time, and that is exciting.”
