MOORHEAD, Minn. (11/09/19)---Two home games. Two overtime games. Two overtime wins for Concordia.
The Cobbers earned their second straight overtime win over Northland when junior Kaitlyn Page scored at 3:45 of the extra period to give Concordia a 1-0 win over the Lumberjills.
The win gives Concordia the series sweep and pushes their overall record to 2-1-0 on the season. Northland is now 2-3-0 after splitting its series with Bethel last weekend.
On Friday night the Cobbers used their power play unit to score on the man-advantage in overtime. On Saturday it was Concordia's penalty kill unit that stepped into the spotlight. CC held Northland scoreless in their seven power play chances on the afternoon. The Cobbers killed off three penalties in the second period and then two more in the first eight minutes of the third to keep the score tied at 0-0.
The Cobbers were whistled for seven penalties while the Lumberjills only took two minor penalties and Concordia came up without a goal in those two chances.
Page's first goal of the season was set up by sophomore Jordie Egerdahl who earned her first assist of the year.
Concordia outshot Northland 33-25 for the game. The biggest difference came in the 3:45 of OT where the Cobbers held an 8-0 edge in shots as they peppered the Lumberjills' net to try and come up with the game winner.
Freshman goalie Kiana Flaig stopped all 25 shots she faced to earn her first collegiate shutout of the afternoon and first collegiate win.
UP NEXT: Concordia will open conference play when they head to Winona to take on St. Mary's on Friday, Nov. 15 and Saturday, Nov. 16. The Cardinals are 0-3 on the season but all three losses have come against teams ranked in the Top 5 of the nation.
