Kevin Roos (Jr., Fargo ND, Fargo South H.S.), scored the game winning goal at 17:19 into overtime to cap Concordia's 2-1 come from behind victory over St. Thomas. St. Thomas took the lead in the first half when Luis Cunha stole the ball from the Cobber defense and put the ball behind Kris Overby (Fr.,
Fargo ND, Fargo South H.S.) with a far post shot. The scored remained in favor of the Tommies until 86:35 when Jerry Nathan (Fr., Fargo ND, Fargo South H.S.) finished off a cross from Jason VanValkenburg (Fr., Fargo ND, Fargo South H.S.). That set the stage for the Kevin Roos who stripped the ball from a St. Thomas defender, found the keeper off his line and proceeded to float the ball into the net for the Cobber victory. With the win the Concordia improves to 2-0 in the MIAC and 5-2-1. St. Thomas falls to 1-2 in the MIAC and 5-3-0 overall. Concordia plays host to Carleton on Saturday at

Cobbers Look To Continue Winning Ways
The Teams :
Concordia (4-2-1, 1-0)
The Cobbers are coming off of a big win on Saturday over nationally ranked (#14) Gustavus.
In that game the Cobbers held tight defensively and waited until the 79th minute before scoring the go-ahead goal. First year player Jerry Nathan (Fargo ND, Fargo South H.S.) took a picture perfect pass from Gennard Lombardozzi (Jr., Billings MT, Billings West H.S.) and slotted the ball just inside the post for the 1-0 victory. The Cobbers will look to extend their win streak to three games today.
The game against St. Thomas is the second of a three-game homestand to start MIAC play. The final game will be on Saturday at 2:00 against Carleton.
St. Thomas (5-2-0, 1-1)
The Tommies are also coming off two consecutive wins. This past weekend they defeated Hamline 4-3 in OT and on Sunday they downed Coe College (IA) 2-1. St. Thomas boasts a high octane offense having scored 17 goals in their 7 games this year. The leading scorer for St. Thomas is Jason English (Sr. Burnsville) who leads the team with three goals and three assists. The Tommies are coached by Denzil Lue, who recently became only the second coach in the MIAC to win 200 games for a career. The other coach to obtain that milestone is Pat Haws from St. John's.
Concordia and St. Thomas have faced each other 13 times since Concordia started the men's soccer program, with St. Thomas holding the edge with an 8-4-1 record. In the last four years Concordia has won three times and three games have been decided by one goal.
4 Years Ago: Concordia 1 St. Thomas 0
In 1996 Concordia was in the midst of their best season, and fought off a tough St. Thomas team 1-0.
Jim Stone scored the lone goal of the game when he stole the ball at the top of the Tommie box and looped a shot over goalkeeper Joe Warren (who would later go on to play for the MN Thunder) just before half time. Jim Stone is now an assistant coach for Augsburg, and he and his wife are expecting their first child in December.
