Cobbers vs. Scots Game Recap

Young Cobbers Fall in MIAC Championship Game to Seasoned Macalester 2-0. 
ST. PAUL-- The odds were stacked against Concordia in the MIAC title game against Macalester. First, the Cobbers were playing in their first-ever MIAC title game, the Scots their second consecutives. Next, Concordia was fighting for a berth in their first-ever NCAA tournament, while Macalester was hoping to make it to the NCAA postseason party for the eighth time in the last ten years. Finally, Concordia has a grand total of two seniors on the team and has 19 freshman or sophomores on the roster. The Scots have seven seniors on the squad, and 10 of their 11 starters are either juniors or seniors.

The present of the MIAC scored a goal in each half, and ran past the future of the league by two goals. Macalester showed their experience in key stretches of play and methodically came away with the 2-0 win.

The loss drops Concordia's overall record to 13-6-1, while the Scots improve to 16-3-1 and will await the announcement of the NCAA tournament selection committee to find out where they will play in the first round of the NCAA women's soccer tourney. 

The Cobbers did not show their inexperience in the first 15 minutes of the game. Concordia controlled the run of play at the onset and had two chances go a-begging in just after the 10-minute mark. Morgan Bain's (So., Hugo, Minn./White Bear Lake HS) attempt was saved by Macalester goalie Louisa Bigelow and then Amy Ravenhorst (So., Hollandale, Minn./Albert Lea HS) hit a shot over the crossbar 44 seconds later. 

The Scots scored their first goal against the run of play when Annie Borton scored her 16th goal of the season at 18:37. From that point on, the Scots whittled away at the youthful vigor of the Cobbers and clamped down on the Concordia high-powered offense.

The back-breaking goal came 17 minutes into the second half when Cara Goff beat Ashley Liegakos (Fr., Maple Grove, Minn.) to make the score 2-0. 

For the game, Liegakos made four saves, as compared to Macalester's Louisa Bigelow, who stopped two shots. The Scots outshot the Cobbers 13-4 in the game, and held a decisive 14-1 edge in corner kicks.

The Cobbers end the year by breaking the school record in overall victories, MIAC victories and highest league finish. Bain completes a storybook season that saw her break the conference record for goals and points in a season.
