MOORHEAD, Minn. (02/10/07)-- Concordia ran smack dab into a riled up St. Thomas team and lost 7-0 on Saturday. The loss came less than 24 hours after the Cobbers had blanked the second-place Tommies 4-0.
The two teams settle for the series split which is the third straight conference split for the Cobbers. CC is now 6-1-2 overall and 5-8-1 in the MIAC. Concordia also misses a chance to gain ground on the pack of teams that are tied for the final league playoff spot. The Tommies salvage two points out of their northern weekend and raise their overall mark to 12-9-0 while they move to 10-4-0 in league play.
Six different St. Thomas players scored in the lopsided victory. Marie Omann was the only Tommie player to net more than one goal in the game as she scored a pair of goals less than two minutes apart at the start of the second period.
Besides Omann, Kristin Beese, Kara Ledel, Alicia Behr, Allison Turgeon and Jackie Carroll all scored for the Tommies who won for only the second time in the past six games. Beese's goal at 9:21 of the opening period proved to be the game-winner.
Concordia was outshot 35-19 for the game. Tommie goalie Lauren Bradel stopped all 19 shots to record her fifth shutout and seventh overall win of the year. CC split the goaltending duties in the game. Freshman Maddie Haroldson started and played the first 25:11. She made eight saves and then gave way to Amber Malcolm who finished the last 34:49 and turned aside 20 shots.
Both teams were whistled for four penalties in the game. Concordia went 0-for-4 on the power play while UST connected on one of their four man-advantage situations.
Concordia will finish off their eight-game home stand when they host Augsburg on Feb. 16-17 at the Moorhead Sports Center.
