SUPERIOR, Wis. (9/22/19)---Concordia was stopped on a pair of point-blank chances in overtime and played to a 1-1 double overtime tie at Wis.-Superior.

The Cobbers got stronger as they game wore on and held the better of the play in both overtime sessions. The best two scoring chances of the extra periods came in the second 10-minute period. Freshman Casey Haldis had a hand in both chances. He had a shot cleared off the line in the first OT period and then had a point-blank shot get miraculously stopped in the second extra session. The rebound on Haldis' second scoring chance bounced to senior Sam Gess who was also robbed on the door step.   

Gess set up the Cobbers' game-tying goal in the second half. The Yellowjackets took a lead in the 24th minute of play before the Cobbers went on the attack starting in the second half. CC was finally rewarded in the 78th minute when Gess broke down the right wing and sent a low cross into the penalty area where sophomore Nate Weaver ran on to the ball and fired it into the left corner of the net.

The goal was Weaver's sixth of the season and second of the weekend. He has scored at least one goal in five of the team's seven games. Gess and Weaver are also tied for the team lead in points. Both players have 13 points on the season.

Concordia outshot Superior 6-4 in the overtime periods but was outshot 20-17 for the game. Gess had a game-high five shots.

Freshman goalie Noah Sahr stopped six shots, including a game saver in OT, and is now 2-1-1 on the season.   

UP NEXT: The Cobbers will return to MIAC action when they play at Carleton on Saturday, Sept. 28 at 12 p.m.  The Knights are 6-1-0 overall and 1-0-0 in the MIAC this season.
