Sunk By Single Scores In Each Half

ST. PAUL, Minn. (9/23/17)--- Concordia gave up a goal in each half and lost 2-0 at Hamline.

The Cobbers were unable to crack the Pipers' defensive-orientated game plan and saw their one-game win streak come to an end. Concordia is now 2-5-1 overall and 0-2-1 in the MIAC. The Pipers win for the third straight game and are 6-3-0 in all games and 2-1-0 in league play.

The game went back-and-forth for the first 15 minutes with the Cobbers gaining the only corner kick of the opening part of play.

Hamline settled the game in the 20th minute when they scored the opening goal.

Concordia had one of their best chances of the game three minutes later when junior Justin Froslie hit the crossbar. Fellow junior Ben Olson also had a chance off of a corner but his shot in the 33rd minute was stopped by the Hamline goalie.

The Cobber had two shots in the first 20 minutes of the second half and then Aronah Mukhtar fired a potential game-tying shot at 78:25 that was turned aside by the HU keeper.

The game would be settled less than one minute later when Hamline scored their second goal of the game to push the final total to 2-0.

Hamline held a 14-9 edge in total shots and a 7-4 margin in shots on goal. Both teams had four corner kicks in the game.

Noah Gjesdahl and Austin Peterson had two total shots each to lead CC while four different players had one shot on goal each.

Freshman goalie Jackson Carr made five saves in goal for the Cobbers.
WHAT'S NEXT: Concordia will have a home and away conference slate next week. The Cobbers will host Macalester on Tuesday, Sept. 26 at 4 p.m. and then travel to Northfield to take on Carleton on Saturday, Sept. 30 at 1 p.m.
