Rain, Rain Go Away

Rain, Rain Go Away

NORTHFIELD, Minn. (10/14/17)---- Concordia conceded a single goal in the first half and two more in the second and lost 3-0 at St. Olaf in a game that was played in a driving rain storm.

The Cobbers and Oles had to slog their way through the 90 minutes on a field that resembled a mud puddle. The game was played immediately after the Concordia and St. Olaf men's game which went through two overtime periods and 110 minutes of play in the rain.

The loss is the third straight for Concordia and drops the Cobbers' overall record to 4-8-1. CC is 2-6-0 in league play. The Oles remain unbeaten in their last four games and are now 6-1-1 in the MIAC and 8-5-1 in all games.

The two teams tried to get used to the playing conditions in the first part of the game with no squad holding an edge in quality chances. The team's traded corner kicks in the first seven minutes of play.

St. Olaf would score the eventual game-winning just before the break. Emily Lecy scored the first of her two goals in the game. Her first goal came at 39:01 and gave the Oles the momentum heading into halftime.

St. Olaf then added a second goal at the 53:05 mark and finished off the scoring at 69:42.

Concordia was outshot 9-0 in shots on goal. Rachel Nemer had the only overall shot for the Cobbers in the game.

Concordia junior goalie Maddy Reed made six saves in the contest.

WHAT'S NEXT: Concordia will be looking for improved weather, and field, conditions when they play a non-conference game at Wis.-Stout on Sunday, Oct. 14 at 2 p.m. The Blue Devils are 4-5-4 overall and coming off a 2-2 double overtime tie at home against Wis.-Oshkosh.
