MOORHEAD, Minn. (1/09/10)-- Concordia broke open a 1-1 game in the third period by scoring three goals in the final 12 minutes of play to claim a 4-1 win over Concordia University on Saturday. The victory gives the Cobbers a series sweep over the Falcons. It is the second sweep of the year for CC who swept Marian (Wis.) in the opening weekend of the season. Concordia is now 7-6-0 on the season and finishes their non-conference slate with a 5-2 record.

Neither team was able to get on the board in the first period despite a total of 18 shots in the frame. The Falcons outshot the Cobbers 10-8 in the first 20 minutes but it was CC who got on the board first. In the ninth minute of the second period, with the game still scoreless, Cobber freshman Melissa Neeb scored her first collegiate goal at the 8:48 mark. The lead didn't last for two minutes as the Falcons got the equalizer on a power play goal by Sarah Cole.

Once again CU outshot the Cobbers in the period but once again the teams were deadlocked headed into the locker room. Not wanting to have to settle the game in overtime like Friday night, Concordia exploded for three goals to put the game out of reach. Kerry Blomberg got the eventual game winner at 8:09. Emily Sell scored the first of her two goals in the final five minutes of play when she netted her team-leading ninth goal of the season on assists from Katelyn Dold and Kayla Hendrickson. The two would also assist on Sell's goal in the final minute of play.

Sell finished off the scoring when she scored an empty-net goal at 19:45. The Falcons pulled goalie Lea Jondal with :55 seconds left in the period and it took the Cobbers :40 seconds to convert. Dold's assist was her 10th of the season which currently leads the team.

For the second straight game Concordia turned to a freshman goalie to pick up the win. Desiree Goret stopped 27 shots to earn her third win of the season. Jondal made 19 saves.

The Cobbers will have a two-week break before jumping into MIAC play when they travel to Minneapolis to take on Augsburg in a two-game series on Jan. 22 and 23.
