|Schmidt Earns MIAC Honor!|
MOORHEAD, Minn. (10/06/09)-- Concordia senior goalie Mads Schmidt (Rodding, Denmark) was named the MIAC Player of the Week by the league office on Tuesday. Schmidt is the second Cobber player to earn the award this season. It marks the first time time in his career that he has earned the weekly award.
Schmidt helped Concordia finish the season without allowing a goal in its final eight games. The Cobbers played to a 0-0 double overtime draw against St. Thomas on Tuesday and then blanked St. John’s 4-0 in the season finale on Saturday. Concordia finished the year by not allowing a goal in 758:38, the third longest streak in MIAC men’s soccer history.
The two shutouts last week helped Schmidt lower his overall goals against average to 0.77 and a 0.88 mark in conference play. He tied for the league lead in shutouts and was second in the conference in goals against average and save percentage.
Against the Tommies he made nine saves and had a pair of game-saving, point-blank saves. He followed that performance by stopping five shots against St. John’s. He also had one outstanding acrobatic save in the second half that helped keep the shutout streak intact until next season.
