NORTHFIELD, Minn. (9/30/17)--- Overtime was kind to the Cobbers for the second straight game.

Kalli Baarstad's direct kick goal in the seventh minute of overtime gave Concordia a 2-1 win at Carleton and earned the Cobbers' their second straight OT conference win.

On Wednesday Concordia scored off of a rebound from a direct kick off the foot of Baarstad and beat Macalester 1-0 in double overtime. On Saturday, Baarstad made sure there would be no rebound needed as she fired home the game winner on the only shot in the first overtime period.

The win is the second in-a-row for Concordia and improves their overall record to 4-5-1. The Cobbers are now 2-3-0 in conference play and are only two points out of the sixth, and final, playoff position.

Carleton remains winless in its last three games and is now 5-3-1 in all games and 1-2-1 in league play.

Concordia got on the board first when senior midfielder Kayla Dostal fired home a shot that glanced off the underside of the crossbar and then bounced just behind the goal line before spinning out of the goal area. The score at 38:17 was Dostal's first of the season.

The Cobbers would hold the 1-0 through the break and into the second half. Carleton tied the game at 64:38 on a shot from the top of the Concordia penalty area.

The game would remain deadlocked at 1-1 through the end of regulation. The teams combined for only three shots on goal in the final 35 minutes of play with Dostal getting the Cobbers' only strike on frame in the final two minutes of play.

Carleton outshot the Cobbers 7-4 in shots on goal. Dostal had a pair of shots on goal while Baarstad and Lauren Zanotti combined for the other two shots. 

Cobber goalie Maddy Reed made six saves to earn her fourth win of the season and the ninth win of her career.

DE-FENSE: Concordia continued its streak of allowing fewer than two goals in a game. CC hasn't allowed more than one goal in three straight games and in eight of their 10 games this year.

WHAT'S NEXT: The Cobbers will have a full week to rest and prepare for their next conference game when they host St. Catherine on Saturday, Oct. 7 at 1 p.m.
