Gameday Game Recap

ST. JOSEPH, Minn. (8/31/08)-- Concordia used a three-goal outburst in the second half to pull away from Nebraska Wesleyan and post a 4-0 win on Sunday in St. Joseph, Minn. The victory is the first of the year for the Cobbers and keeps the team unbeaten at 1-0-1.

After struggling to a 1-1 overtime tie with fellow 2007 NCAA playoff participant Wartburg on Saturday, Concordia got back in the saddle by outshooting the Prairie Wolves 16-1. While the offense was a step off on Saturday, on Sunday they hit their stride in the 61st minute when they scored the second goal of the game. Sophomore Sam Johnson shook off any questions of a sophomore slump as she scored the second of her two goals in the game. That would be the start of three straight goals by CC in a span of 16:15. The three-goal spurt put the game out of reach and added to the confidence of Concordia as they try and repeat as MIAC champions for the third straight season.

Johnson opened the scoring in the first half when she found the back of the net at the 22:30 mark. Freshman Bekah Marcis was credited with her first collegiate assist. The game would stay at 1-0 until 15 minutes into the second half. That is when Johnson lit the offensive fire with her second goal of the game. A pair of CC players then picked up their first collegiate goals. Freshman Alexa Westbee scored at 64:56 to push the lead to 3-0 and then senior defender Andrea Flynn got her mielstone goal at 74:03. Both goals were unasssisted.

Concordia goalie Britt Reiersgord was called upon to make only one save in earning her first shutout of the season. For the senior, it was her record-setting 29th career shutout. NWU goalie Sara Perdew made four saves in the losing effort.

The Cobbers will host the Cobber Invite next weekend. CC will play a pair of Wisconsin schools. They will square off against UW-River Falls on Saturday, Sept. 6 at 5 p.m. and then UW-Oshkosh on Sunday, Sept. 7 at 10 a.m.
