WINONA, Minn. (4/18/21)---Telvin Vah and Nate Weaver continue to lead a red-hot Cobber offense as the two combined for two goals and two assists in the Cobbers' 3-1 win over St. Mary's.

On Saturday, Vah scored the game-winning goal in OT against Augsburg while Weaver scored the late game-tying marker to set up the extra-session victory. On Sunday, Weaver assisted on the first goal of the game scored by Vah and then Vah returned the favor when Weaver sealed the win in the 85th minute.
