ST. PAUL, Minn. (9/23/17)--- Concordia's game at Hamline could have gone either way but the Cobbers gave up a goal in the 13th minute and a ran into a hot goaltender and lost 1-0.

The Cobbers owned the first half and had repeated chances in the opening 45 minutes of play as they lost for the fourth straight game. Concordia is now 2-5-1 overall and 0-3-0 in the MIAC. Hamline wins for the fifth time in the last six games and are 5-2-1 in all games and 3-1-0 in the MIAC.

It was all Concordia in the first 10 minutes and final 30 minutes of the opening half of play. Unfortunately they were unable to get on the board and allowed the Pipers to net the only goal of the game at the 12:10 mark.

Freshman Klara Beinhorn had a pair of shots on goal in the first four minutes and Kalli Baarstad gave CC a 3-0 edge in shots on goal in the first 10 minutes of play. The Pipers would score on their very first shot on goal and then CC would pump the Hamline goal for three more shots in the first half but couldn't find the back of the net.

Baarstad had all three of the shots for the Cobbers in the back end of the opening period of play.

The heat and a scheme to defend the one-goal lead led to the majority of the action being played between the penalty areas in the second half. Concordia failed to get a shot off in the final 45 minutes of play.

The Cobbers trailed 12-7 in overall shots and 7-5 in shots on goal. Baarstad led all players with four shots and four shots on goal. Beinhorn had two shots and both of hers were on frame. Andrea Kramer had the other shot for CC.
