SUPERIOR, Wis. (01/07/07)-- The good news for the Concordia women's hockey team is that they broke out of their two-game scoring drought. The bad news is that they allowed a season-high eight goals in their 8-1 loss at No.4-ranked UW-Superior on Sunday.
Coming into the game, the Cobbers had not allowed more than four goals in a single game. The Yellowjackets were able to score three goals in each of the first and third periods en route to the seven-goal victory.
The Concordia highlight came in the third period when Paige Stone scored an even-strength goal that put an end to a 176-minute scoreless streak that started before the Christmas break. For Stone, it was her third goal of the season and was set up by Brandie Dunn and Marya Losinski.
The pivotal point of the game came in the first period when Superior scored two goals just 15 seconds apart. The Yellowjackets netted the game's first goal at 6:15 and then took the faceoff and put another goal on the board at the 6:30 mark.
The Cobbers were never able to recover from the back-to-back strikes and allowed a third goal at the 13:00-minute mark of the period.
Concordia allowed two more goals in the second and one in the third before scoring their lone goal of the game.
Superior held a 40-20 advantage in shots on goal for the game. CC split the goaltending duties with starting goalie Amber Malcolm played the first period and making 12 saves. Maddie Haroldson then finished off the final two frames and turned aside 20 shots. Superior goalie Melissa Kunzelman made 19 saves to pick up her seventh win of the year.
The Cobbers were 0-for-5 on the power play and conceded a short-handed goal. For the weekend, CC went 0-for-10 in man-advantage situations. The Yellowjackets were 1-for-8 on the power play on Sunday.
Concordia will return to MIAC action when they play at St. Olaf on Saturday and Sunday Jan. 13-14.
