MOORHEAD, Minn. (10/06/09)-- Concordia scored five goals against UW-Superior on Tuesday in Moorhead to win their fourth straight game and even their overall season record at 6-6. The Cobbers are also now 3-3 in conference play 4-4 at home and 2-2 on the road.

The Cobbers posted four goals in the first half on a rain-soaked field in Moorhead to down the Yellowjackets 5-0. It is the second straight season that CC has beaten Superior and also marks the team's second consecutive shutout of the season.

Once again the Cobbers' offense was led by sophomore forward Riley McGlynn who scored a pair of goals. McGlynn, the MIAC Player of the Week, has now scored at least one goal in the last four games and has five goals in the past two contests. He currently leads the Cobbers with 10 goals for 20 points on the year.

It took the Cobbers until the 29th minute to open the scoring as both teams had a hard time dealing with the wet and slippery conditions. Once the Cobbers scored their first goal, they would get three more within 13 minutes and finish the opening half with a 4-0 lead. Freshman Kristian Reiersgord scored his first collegiate goal when he headed home the game winner at the 28:55 mark. The play was set up from a cross from Alex Dahl and Marco Riboli. Dahl and Riboli would both go on to have three assists on the day and Riboli would add his first goal of the year later in the period.

The second goal game off the foot of McGlynn who was played clear of the Superior defense from defender Patrick Rundlett. The goal at 31:30 was McGlynn's ninth of the year. Riboli then added the third goal for CC when he cracked home a shot from the top of the box at 40:20. Freshman Jared Rice then finished off the barrage of late first-half goals when he scored his third goal of the year, and third in as many games, at the 41:40 mark.

The lone goal of the second half came at 60:50 when McGlynn took a feed from Dahl on the left side of the box and quickly turned and fired the ball into the far right side of the net.

For the game Concordia outshot UW-Superior (4-5-1) 17-16 with most of the Yellowjackets shot coming from outside the penalty area. The Cobbers also held a 9-3 edge in shots on goal and a 9-5 margin in corner kicks.

Cobber keeper Mads Schmidt turned aside three shots to record his second straight shutout and pick up his sixth win of the season. Tom Fitzer made four saves in the losing effort.

Concordia will take to the road for the next four out of five games. The Cobbers will play at Augsburg on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. in a game between a pair of teams in the MIAC playoff hunt.
