STORY LINE: Concordia scored three goals in the final four minutes of the third period and overcame a 3-1 deficit to beat St. Olaf 4-3. The Cobbers' trio of game-deciding goals started with Kaitlyn Page and then Megan Mohr and Amanda Flemming added power play strikes to give Concordia the 1-goal win.

RECORDS: Concordia wins for the fourth time in their first five conference games and moves to 4-0-1 in MIAC play. The Cobbers are now 4-3-1 in all games. St. Olaf continues to look for their first win of the season as they fall to 0-7-1 overall and 0-4-1 in league games.

55 MINUTES OF HITTING THE SNOOZE BUTTON: Concordia never led in the game until the 18:30 mark of the third period. St. Olaf opened the scoring with a goal at 16:10 before the Cobbers tied the game on a goal by Sage Barta in the final 10 seconds of the opening period. Libby Hinrichs and Callie Fagerstrom got the assists on Barta's fourth goal of the season. The Oles would then counter with a single goal in the second and then another in the third minute of the third to take a 3-1 lead.

GETTING READY AND OUT THE DOOR IN 2:26: After laying low for the first 55 minutes of the game, the Cobbers offense woke up, got ready and put the game out the door in a span of 2:26. Page started the stretch with a goal at 16:04. Mohr than tied the game 56-seconds later before Flemming got the game winner at the 18:30 mark – just 1:30 after the game-tying goal.

The 44 total shots is a season high and the 13 shots allowed are the fewest of the year. The Cobbers didn't put up over 40 shots in any conference game last year and the last time they had over 40 shots in any game came against Finlandia last year when they recorded 42 shots.

OFFENSIVE LEADERS GET BACK ON TRACK: Concordia's two offensive statistical leaders got back on the scoresheet after having scoring streaks stopped las game. Amanda Fleming notched her team-leading fifth goal of the season. She has now scored in five of the past six games. Callie Fagerstrom had a pair of assists on the night and leads CC in total points with nine. She has recorded at least one point in all but one game this season. Fagerstrom now leads the MIAC in scoring by a defenseman.

POWER PLAY PERKS UP: One game after being held scoreless in six power play attempts the Cobber PP crew scored twice against the Oles and went 2-for-6.  Concordia has scored nine power play goals this season which is the most by any team in the conference.

UP NEXT: Concordia and St. Olaf will finish off the 2-game series on Saturday at 2 p.m. It will also be the final MIAC game in the history of the Northfield Ice Arena. The Oles are moving to a brand new on-campus rink after the Christmas break.
