Gameday Game Recap:

ST. PETER, Minn. (12/06/08)-- Concordia's quest to post a second consecutive road win against a top-tier conference team to start the season came up short on Saturday as the Cobbers fell 71-60 at Gustavus. The loss evens CC's conference record at 1-1. They are now 2-3 overall.

After beating preseason favorite St. Thomas on Wednesday, Concordia was trying to record their best conference start in several seasons. Unfortunately the Gusties (4-0/2-0 MIAC) were able to come up with a big run in the second half and came away with the 11-point victory.

The Cobbers cut the Gustavus lead to four points at the 12:39 mark of the second period on a 3-point field goal by Maggie Bauernfiend. That is when the Gustavus mounted their game-changing rally. The Gusties were able to post a 19-5 run in the next six minutes and grabbed a 64-46 lead with 6:58 remaining in the game. The Cobbers almost crawled out of the 18-point hole. They were able to trim the lead to six points with 3:55 to play but a three-minute scoring drought by CC spelled the end to any thoughts of posting a big-time rally.

Concordia had two players in double figures for the game. Senior Jenna Freudenberg had a team-high 13 points and added five rebounds. Freshman Jenna Green playing in only her second game of the year posted 10 points, seven of which came in the second half. Erica Nord had the most overall game for Concordia. She came away with nine points to go with five rebounds and four steals.

The Cobbers shot 38.7% (24-for-62) from the floor and 40.0% (6-for-15) from 3-point range. CC only shot seven free throws in the game. That was in sharp contrast to Gustavus who went 15-for-20 (75.0%) from the foul line for the game. The Gusties also shot 40.4% (23-for-57) from the field and 66.7% (10-for-15) from behind the arc.

Concordia outrebounded Gustavus 37-36 but committed 24 turnovers to only 19 for GAC.

Concordia will return to action when they host Carleton on Monday, Dec. 8 at 5:45 p.m.
