Concordia scored their goal 31 minutes into the first half.

“Concordia did a great job of possessing the ball and creating passing angles in the first half,” said Chad Miller, Northeast coach. “We struggled to control it, and they created chances for themselves. Our defense did a good job of bottling a lot of those up.”

The Hawks evened the score in the second half, when, in the 64th minute, Cassie Pickrel settled the ball wide of Concordia’s goal and passed it across to Lindsey Epp, who scored the goal.

Miller said the remainder of the second half and both overtimes were a back-and-forth.

“They had good chances and our defense did a good job of closing it down, and we had good chances that they were able to close down. I was happy with how we played. We possessed the ball well and adjusted to their speed really well.  Concordia is a fast, strong team that passes really well. It is good to see us adjust to such a strong opponent.”

Northeast recorded 17 shots and eight shots on goal, while Concordia had 13 total shots and six shots on goal.

Alexis Wemhoff tallied five saves for the Hawks.

Northeast (9-2-1) will face #20 Indian Hills Community College on Saturday in Ottumwa, IA, at 4 p.m.
