MOORHEAD, Minn. (2/11/08)--Concordia junior forward Alyssa Dahl (Willmar, Minn.) was named the MIAC Women's Hockey Co-Player of the Week it was announced by the league office on Monday. Dahl had five points in the Cobbers' two-game sweep over Augsburg over the weekend.

It is the first time in her career that she has won the conference weekly award and becomes the first Concordia player to earn the honor since Ashley Anderson won the award on Nov. 29, 2004. Dahl shares her weekly honor with Sandra Felton (Jr., Cashton, Wis.) who also had five points in the Royals' sweep over St. Mary's.

Dahl scored a hat trick on Friday and had two assists on Saturday in the Cobbers' weekend sweep over Augsburg. All told she had a hand in five of the six Concordia goals scored in the two-game sweep. With the two wins Concordia, who was predicted to finish sixth in the MIAC Coaches' Preseason Poll, remains in sole possession of third place in the league standings. The Cobbers currently have eight wins in the MIAC which tied the most since the 2002-03 season.

On Friday, Dahl scored all three goals in a 3-0 win over the Auggies. She scored the first of her three scores only five seconds apart - that is an MIAC record for fastest back-to-back goals by a single player and is believed to also be a national record. She added the third goal less than four minutes later in the third period after CC was tied 0-0 heading into the final period. Her three goals in a span of 3:56 is the fastest hat trick by a single player in school history and could be a conference record as well.

On Saturday, Dahl had a pair of assists and helped CC claim a 3-2 win. All told in the two games Dahl had 14 shots.
