Gameday Game Recap:

LISLE, Ill. (10/20/08)-- If the 2008 men's soccer season was a horse race, the Cobbers would be flying around the clubhouse turn and galloping down the back stretch as they close in on the finish line. With three games to play in the season, Concordia is finding their stride as they scored three goals in each half and raced to a 6-0 win over Benedictine (Ill.) in Lisle on Monday. The win is the third straight for the Cobbers and ups their season record to 7-8. The seven wins is the most in a single season since CC won 12 in 2001.

Concordia made sure the host Eagles never had a chance to get settled in and start an offensive attack. The Cobbers put pressure on Benedictine from the outset and were rewarded in the eighth minute when sophomore Alex Dahl scored his second goal of the year at 7:58. Freshman Riley McGlynn was given the assist on the play.

CC pushed the lead to 3-0 at the break when they scored two goals in less than 10 minutes at the half hour mark. Kyle Quimby knocked home his second goal of the season on a free kick at 21:06 and then Justin Foss netted the first of his two goals on the night at 30:24. Philip Bruckbauer set up Foss on his team-leading 10th goal of the year.

Bruckbauer would then start the scoring in second half when he notched his first collegiate goal at the 51:45 mark. Foss would then push the score to 5-0 at 64:42 when he finished off a pass from defender Patrick Rundlett. Jon Hedin then capped the scoring when he finished off his first collegiate goal at 71:16. Michael Posch was credited with the assist on the play.

For the game, Concordia had eight players show up on the score sheet. Foss recorded his third two-goal game of the year and second in the past three contests. He now has 11 goals on the season which is the most in a season for a CC player since Dustin Allard also had 11 in 2001. The 11 goals on the year is also the second most in school history. Only former MIAC MVP Peter Curry scored more when he netted 16 in 1994. Foss also has 24 total points in 2008 which is the most since the 2001 season.

The Cobbers held a decided edge in shots in the game. CC outshot the Eagles 42-19 in total shots and 17-6 in shots on goal. Seven different Concordia players had at least four shots in the game. Posch led all players with eight shots - four of which found the frame.

Cobber goalie Mads Schmidt stopped all six shots he faced to pick up his fifth shutout of the season. Benedictine split the goalkeeping duties. Jim Hanley started the game and made four saves. David Mickiewicz played the second half and turned aside seven shots.

Concordia will head back to MIAC play when they travel to Bethel to take on the Royals on Saturday, Oct. 25 at 1 p.m.
