MOORHEAD, Minn. (2/13/10)-- Less than 24 hours after playing in an instant classic that featured 12 goals, Concordia and St. Kate's went up and down the ice for 60 minutes, scored 11 goals and put on another great show of women's hockey. On Saturday CC let a 5-4 lead slip away in the final six minutes and lost 6-5.

The Cobbers are now winless in their last four games and fall to 10-9-2 overall and 5-7-2 in the MIAC and remain in a tie for sixth place in the league standings. The Wildcats improve to 14-4-1 and 10-3-1 in the conference and are locked in a three-way tie for first place.

It was the Katelyn Dold and Michaela Michaelson show on Saturday afternoon. Both players had two goals and an assist for their team and upped their team-leading point totals on the season. Dold currently leads the MIAC in scoring with 13 goals and 18 assists for 31 points while Michaelson has 15 goals and 13 assists for 28 points and is in second place in the league scoring race.

Just like Friday night St. Kate's scored early and then built a 3-1 lead after the first 20 minutes of play. The Wildcats scored just :21 seconds into the game on Saturday. CSC then added to their lead at 7:01 and it looked like the Wildcats would cruise to a win and not let the Cobbers rally like they did on Friday. That feeling lasted exactly :55 seconds as the Cobbers connected on a power play goal to get to within one at 2-1. Macy Leland's third goal of the year at 7:56 got CC back on track and back into the game. St. Kate's took a 3-1 lead into the break when they scored a power play goal of their own at 16:01.

The Cobbers then came out in the second frame and played one of their best periods of the season. Concordia scored three straight goals in the period and outshot the Wildcats 15-3. The outburst gave CC their first lead of the series and set the tone for another wild third period. The Cobbers scored a pair of shorthanded goals exactly 1:00 apart at the start of the second to start their comeback trail. After Kayla Thorson took an interference penalty at 1:36, Emily Sell scored her 13th goal of the year at the 2:08 mark with an assist from Dold. The two hooked up at 3:08 when Dold scored and Sell was credited with the assist. Thorson then scored at 18:00 and suddenly CC had a 4-3 lead.

St. Kate's tied the game at 4-4 midway through the period when Michaelson scored an even-strength goal at 9:01. Dold then regained the lead for Concordia at 14:13. Dold finished off her 13th goal of the year on an assist from Kayla Hendrickson.

With a little over five minutes to play the Cobbers needed only to protect the one-goal lead but Michaelson and the Wildcats had other ideas. Ashley Tilton scored at 16:08 to tie the game at 5-5 and then Michaelson added the game winner less than 1:00 later when she scored her 15th goal of the year at 17:06.

St. Kate's was 1-for-10 on the power play as the Cobbers were whistled for 10 penalties in the game. CSC was held to just 12 shots in their 10 man-advantage attempts and Concordia scored twice while they were killing off one of the 10 penalties. CC was 1-for-5 on the power and also allowed a shorthanded goal.

The Cobbers outshot St. Kate's for the second straight game. Concordia held a 34-25 edge on Saturday and a 75-59 advantage for the series. CC freshman goalie Desiree Goret made 19 saves in the game. The Wildcats split the goaltending duties for the 60 minutes. Kayla Lange started and was pulled after 23:08. She made 12 saves on the day. Mel Gerten entered in the second period and stopped 17 shots in the final 36:52 of play. Gerten earned her 12th win of the season.

Concordia will host their final home series of the regular season when they square off against Hamline on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 19 & 20 at the Moorhead Sports Center.
