MOORHEAD, Minn. (1/9/10)-- For the first half of their game with UW-Stevens Point on Saturday, Concordia was locked in a one-goal game that could go either way. That's when things went sour for the Cobbers. The Pointer scored a pair of goals in the second half of the second period then scored three more in the third en route to a 7-1 win.

The loss was the second of the weekend for Concordia. The Cobbers fall to 3-10-2 on the season while Stevens Point evens their overall record at 8-8-2.

The game was even through the first 30 minutes of play as the two teams each had 13 shots in the first period and then each had five shots in the first nine minutes of the second period. After the first 30 minutes of play, the Pointers held a 2-1 lead after getting goals from Kyle Greco at 5:21 and Jon Madden at 16:22 in the first period. Concordia countered with a goal by sophomore Robb Roy just before the end of the first frame to head into the locker room down 2-1. Roy's second goal of the year was assisted by Ben Payne and Brian Kang.

Unfortunately the game got out of hand in the second 30 minutes as Stevens Point scored five consecutive goals and turned a tight 2-1 contest into a 7-1 blowout. Sam Graham scored at 9:56 of the middle period to give UWSP a 3-1 lead. Then Madden scored his second goal of the game at 17:59 to put the Pointer up by three at 4-1. That goal deflated the Cobbers' hopes and Concordia struggled through the final 20 minutes of play.

Concordia was outshot 16-6 in the final period and gave up three goals.

For the game Stevens Point held a 45-31 edge in shots on goal. Concordia used two goalies in the game. Jacob Vatnsdal started the game and played the first 54:11 he made 33 saves. Ole Brondbo finished off the game and turned aside five shots. Nick Graves stopped 30 shots for the Pointers and earned his fifth win of the year.

Concordia returns to MIAC action next weekend when they host St. Thomas in a two-game series on Jan. 15 and 16. Both games will be at the Moorhead Sports Center.
