ST. PAUL, Minn. (12/5/09)-- Concordia was just :21 seconds away from heading to overtime with Bethel and facing the possibility of being swept by the Royals. That's when Cobber sophomore Katelyn Dold stepped in and produced the biggest goal of the season. Dold notched her fifth goal of the season at 19:39 to give CC the 2-1 win and salvage the series split with Bethel.

Concordia is now 5-4-0 in all games and 2-2 in MIAC play while the Royals slide to 1-7-0 and 1-3-0 in league play.

Like Friday's game where Concordia spotted the Royals a pair of goals in the first period, it took the Cobbers a full 32 minutes before getting on the board and had to climb out of a deficit to get back in the game. Bethel scored the opening goal of the game at 6:00 of the first period. Concordia would outshoot the Royals 15-7 in the first 20 minutes of the game but would head into the first intermission down 1-0.

The roles were almost reversed in the second period. Bethel put up 13 shots in the second frame but came away with nada and conceded the only goal of the period. Concordia was able to tie the game at 12:03 when Kristyn Voegele scored on the power play. Kit Holloway and Kaylee Black were awarded the assists on Voegele's second goal of the season.

The game would stay deadlocked at 1-1 until the final :30 seconds of the game. The teams combined to take 38 shots without scoring a goal in the final 7:57 of the second period and first 19:39 of the final frame. Dold snapped the scoreless streak when she fired home her fifth goal of the year after Bethel had been whistled for a hooking penalty at 18:53. A pair of coincidental penalties was then called at 19:19 before Dold sent the Cobbers home with the win at 19:39. Kayla Hendrickson had the helper on the game winner which marked her second point of the weekend.

Concordia ended up outshooting Bethel 43-31 in the game and for the series had 77 shots on goal. The Cobbers went with freshman Desiree Goret in goal. Goret earned her second straight win as she stopped 30 of the 31 shots she faced. She has now started two games and has two wins and a goals against average of 1.29. Bethel goalie Jess Newstrom made 41 saves in the losing effort.

Concordia will finish off the 2009 portion of their schedule when they play at St. Mary's next weekend in a two-game series.
