Game Story:
Junior running back Bobby Clark (Seeley Lake, Mont.) is tackled by a host of Dragons in Power Bowl IV. 

Concordia couldn't overcome three costly turnovers and a fierce third quarter wind, and dropped their opening game of the year 41-17 to MSU-Moorhead.

The Cobbers gave the Dragons a "short field" on three separate occasion following turnovers and each time MUS-Moorhead converted the mistake into seven points.

Concordia had a chance to get back in the game in the second half, trailing only 21-10 at the break, but were forced to go against a howling Red River wind in the deciding third quarter. MSU-Moorhead rattled off 14 unanswered points to push the margin to 25 points at the end of the quarter. The Cobbers managed to only score a single touchdown in the fourth quarter which was preceded by the final Dragon six points.

MSU-Moorhead quarterback Brad Duerr (Sr., Fosston, Minn.) controlled the game on the ground as he rushed for 119 yards and three touchdowns. For his efforts he was named the "Most Electrifying Offensive Player of the Game". He helped the Dragons rack up 305 yards on offense, 242 of which was on the ground. Ryan Hebrink (Jr., Sacred Heart, Minn.) led the way for Concordia's offense, recording 89 yards on the ground and 119 through the air. Hebrink was only sacked twice during the game, as the young Cobber offense line held up to the pressure put on by the Dragon front four.

Bobby Clark (Jr., Seeley Lake, Mont.) had 86 yards of rushing for the game and only three rushing attempts in the second half, as he was forced to leave the game due to severe cramps that were caused by the severe heat. Concordia finished with 303 total yards on offense.

One of the highlights offensively was a 25 yard field goal by first-year player Brian Halverson (Fargo, N.Dak.). The successful three-pointer marked the first time in the Terry Horan era that the Cobbers had successfully kicked a field goal. The team went all of last season without converting on an attempt.

In his debut as starting middle linebacker, Doug Runke (So., Willmar, Minn.) led all Cobbers with eight tackles on the day. Concordia's defense limited the Dragons to only 63 passing yards but conceded 242 on the ground.

Concordia opens up MIAC next weekend when they host Gustavus on Saturday, September 14th at 1:00pm. The game will be part of the school's annual Family Day weekend.
