Falcon hockey women stun #8 UW Superior 2-1


Concordia (11-8-1) recorded the signature win of their hockey season Friday evening, stunning #8 UW-Superior 2-1 on the road.

"We probably played our best hockey of the season," understated Coach Jim Ingman. "Our players made adjustments along the way and really sacrificed themselves at the end with some great blocks when they (the Yellow Jackets) pulled their goalie and were firing shots at us trying to get a tie."

The hosts actually scored first on an Alison Shrift tally at 11:37 of the first period but Concordia got the equalizer on a power play score by Jaime Athens at 16:37 of the second session.

Then April Forar lit the lamp for one of the most historic goals in Falcon history at 7:08 of the third and CUW held on behind determined defense.

"Sarah Lichtie, Hilary Christiansen, Samantha Meuwissen...," the coach's list of stellar performers went on and on.

UW-Superior (11-4-4 overall) will host the Falcons again on Saturday. The yellow jackets are 9-2-4 in league play and Concordia is now 8-4-1.
