MOORHEAD, Minn. (10/06/09)-- No-14-ranked Concordia made it rain goals on an overcast day in Moorhead on Tuesday. The Cobbers unleashed a downpour of 10 goals as they beat UW-Superior 10-1. The win is the 11th straight for the Cobbers to start the 2009 season. The 11 wins to start a year is one shy of the Concordia all-school record for best start of a season. The 1995 baseball started the season 12-0 before losing their 13th game against St. John's.

The game was out of reach within the first 15 minutes when Concordia scored three goals - the first of which came before the game was even two minutes old. The Cobbers would go on to score six goals in the opening half and then add four more in the second period. The Yellowjackets (1-10) scored their lone goal of the game in the 81st minute.

Concordia junior forward Sam Johnson had a career day. She finished with four goals and six shots. Johnson, the MIAC Player of the Week, now has 12 goals and two assists on the year for a team-leading 26 points. She now leads the MIAC in goals scored and is tied for the lead in total points.

Joining Johnson in the scoring parade was freshman Sarah Rounds. Rounds had two goals and three assists for seven points on the day. She entered the day with six points and doubled that total and now has 13 points on the year which is good for third place on the team.

The Cobbers received the other four goals from four different players. Megan Rice, Abby Habein, Mikenna Maroney and Killashandra Link all had tallies in the most prolific scoring day of the season. Johnson and habein each scored their second goal of the year while Maroney and Link posted their first goal of the season. For Link it was her first collegiate goal.

Concordia had 25 shots on the day and outshot Superior 25-3 for the game. The Cobbers also held a decided 17-1 edge in shots on goal.

The Cobbers split the goalkeeper duties. Ali Nelson started the game and played the first 14:30. She didn't need to make a save to earn her 10th win of the season. Fellow freshman Haley Haddock played the final 75:30. Yellowjacket goalie Felicia Bibeau made seven saves.

Concordia will now head out on the road for six straight games. The Cobbers will start their marathon road trip on Saturday, Oct. 10 when they play at Augsburg at 7:30 p.m.
