STORY LINE: Megan Mohr's 1-time top-shelf goal in the fourth minute of the third period helped Concordia earn a 1-1 overtime tie with St. Mary's in the first game of the 2019 calendar year. The deadlock keeps the Cobbers unbeaten in conference play.

RECORDS: Concordia is now unbeaten in its last three games and moves to 8-4-2 overall. CC is now 5-0-2 in the MIAC. They are currently in second place with 12 league points. St. Mary's posts its third 1-1 OT tie in the last four games and is now 4-7-2 in all games and 1-5-1 in the conference.

MORE OF MOHR: Megan Mohr tied the game at the 3:58 mark of the third period when she blasted a 1-time shot from the top of the right face-off circle which found the top left corner of the net. It was her third goal of the season. Amanda Flemming and Callie Fagerstrom earned the assists on the play.

TEAM LEADERS: The assists on the only goal of the game for the Cobbers add to Amanda Flemming and Callie Fagerstrom's team-leading totals. Flemming now has eight goals and five assists for 13 points and Fagerstrom is second with five goals and six helpers for 11 points. Fargerstrom's six assists lead CC.  

SLOW START: Concordia started slowly in the first period as they tried to get back in the playing mode after taking a Christmas break training trip to Italy. The Cobbers were outshot 8-5 in the first 20 minutes and allowed the first goal of the game in the final minute of the period.

FASTER FINISH: The Cobbers found their legs in the second period and outshot the Cardinals 14-5 in the middle frame. CC then held the majority of the zone time in the third period and overtime and wound up outshooting SMU 29-22.

MANY CHANCES, ONLY ONE GOAL: The good news for the Cobber special teams is that they held St. Mary's scoreless in their four power play chances and that their only goal of the game came on the power play. The bad news is that Concordia was 1-for-7 on power play opportunities. The seven power play chances are the most on the season for CC. The Cobbers are now 2-for-21 on the power play in their last six games.

BACKSTOP BRITT: Cobber senior goalie Brittany Boss stopped the final 14 shots on goal she faced in the second and third periods. She finished with 21 stops on the night and lowered her GAA to 1.66 for the year. She is now 2-1-2 in starts on a Friday night.         
  
UP NEXT: The Cobbers and Cardinals will finish off their season series when they square off on Saturday, Jan. 12 at 2 p.m. at the Moorhead Sports Center. Concordia is 4-2-0 in games played on a Saturday this season.
