Kyle Sytsma took the 35th Falcon shot of the match with three minutes left in the second overtime. Unlike the previous 34 attempts, this one went in and allowed Coach Tom Saleska to finally breathe a sigh of relief. Concordia, 11-3-2, was pushed to the limit by a Rockford team that has only one victory this season but effectively packed everyone in defensively for nearly 117 minutes.
Bryce Bartelt assisted on the golden goal that allowed CUW to remain in contention (7-1-0) in the NAC. Concordia has another huge match next Wednesday when the Falcons travel to powerful MSOE for a 7:00pm encounter.
