        | Box Score | Action Picture Page |
Annie Cullen (Moorhead, Minn.) slots the ball past the Hamline goalie for the first goal of the game. 

Concordia scored a lone first half goal and then used a fierce wind in the second frame to score two more and down Hamline 3-0. The three-goal outburst is the most for the Cobbers since their opening game against Northland College on August 30th.

The Cobbers struck mid way through the opening frame when first-year player Annie Cullen (Moorhead, Minn.) took a centering pass from Amy Jo Walthall (Sr., Staples, Minn.) and slotted the ball past Hamline goaltender Melissa Cherry. The teams traded play in the middle half of the field throughout the first half as a blustery north wind hampered both teams ability to attack the net.

In the second period, the Cobbers (3-3-0, 4-6-1) used the wind to their advantage and pinned the Pipers (1-4-0, 2-9-0) in their own end for most of the half. Concordia scored twice in the frame and out shot Hamline 17-1 in the second half. Kendra Lee (Jr., Jamestown, N.Dak.)  notched Concordia's second goal at 50:34 and Walthall finished the scoring at 85:47. It was Walthall's first goal of the season, and gave her a three-point afternoon. Cullen added an assist on Walthall's goal and also came away with three point for the game.

Concordia goaltender Kathy Braun (Sr., Willmar, Minn.) made two saves in recording her fourth shutout on the season. Cherry made 18 saves in the losing effort. 

Concordia returns to action on Tuesday, October 15th when they host Bethel at 3:30pm. The Cobbers will then travel to California to play a pair of games over mid-semester break.

10/01 Cobbers Put the Clamps on Augsburg, Win 1-0.
        | Box Score | Action Picture Page |
Concordia used a stifling defense to keep the Augsburg attack away from the goal and snapped a five-game winless streak, downing the Auggies 1-0. 

Carmelle Johnson's (So., Northridge, Cali.) goal at 42:15 was all the offense Concordia (1-2-0, 2-5-1) would need in putting up their second win of the year and first in the MIAC. Johnson scored on a shot off of a corner kick. Meghan Hansen (Sr., Eagan, Minn.) delivered the ball into the goal mouth where Johnson was able to get a foot to the ball and shoot it over Augsburg goalie Laura Hoffman. For Johnson it was her first collegiate goal. It was only the third goal conceded by Augsburg (2-3-0, 5-3-0) in their first eight games of the year. 

Despite being out shot 16-6 in the game, the Cobbers were able to control a majority of the possession. Most of Augsburg's shots on the net came from counterattacks and long balls served into the Concordia defensive third of the field. Concordia goalkeeper Kathy Braun (Sr., Willmar, Minn.) turned aside all nine shots that she faced, and did a good job of cutting off many of the Auggies' passes that made their way through the back of the Cobber defense. Hoffman made two saves on the day.

Concordia will play at St. Mary's on Saturday, October 5th at noon, while Augsburg will play at St. Kate's on Saturday at 1:00pm.

        | Box Score |
Meghan Hansen (Sr., Eagan, Minn.) scored the lone Cobber goal in Concordia's 1-1 tie with MSU-Moorhead. 

Concordia's Meghan Hansen(Sr., Eagan, Minn.) scored with just under 17 minutes to go in regulation to help the Cobbers gain a 1-1 tie with cross-town rival MSU-Moorhead. The two teams played an additional 20 minutes of overtime but neither team could manage to score in the two extra periods.

The Dragons took a 1-0 advantage 15 minutes into the second half, but couldn't hold off the Concordia offensive attack and conceded the game-tying goal 13 minutes after taking the lead. Jaime Duggan netted the lone goal for MSU-Moorhead, it was her second goal of the season. Hansen's goal came off of a corner kick. The ball was sent into the goalmouth by Cara Cloppas and was played by several players before Hansen was able to poke the ball past Dragon keeper Tammi Radder

The Cobbers and Dragons traded midfield play in the first half, and Concordia came close to taking the lead but Kendra Lee's (Jr., Jamestown, N.Dak.) penalty kick and subsequent rebound were thwarted by a diving Radder. Concordia's goalie Kathy Braun (Sr., Willmar, Minn.) saved her heroics for the overtime period. After the Dragons passed the ball across the face of Concordia's goal, Braun made up the distance and sprawled to make a save on a point-blank shot. 

For the game, Braun finished with seven saves while Radder turned away five Cobber attempts.

8/12 Concordia Women's Soccer 2002 Preview Now Online.
Pre-Season Notes:
The Concordia women's soccer team will feature some old faces and a significant new look. The new look will come from head coach Dan Weiler who takes over for Jim Cella. It will be Weiler's first year as a college coach. The old faces will be seen in the 10 starters that Weiler has back from a year ago. The stability on the field should help the Cobbers move up from their ninth place finish in the MIAC last season. The Cobbers will also welcome back the familiar face of defender Kristen Orme who sat out all but four games last year due to knee surgery. 

Offensively the Cobbers will be led by Kendra Lee who was named to the MIAC All-Conference team last year. She currently has 108 career points and is 30 shy of breaking the school record. Lee has led the Cobbers in scoring in her first three years in the maroon and gold. The team also returns two of their other top four scorers from 2001. Senior Meghan Hansen was third in scoring with 10 points (2 goals/6 assists) and junior Haley Groce was fourth with nine points (3 goals/3 assists). | Continued
