The score was already 8-0 after two innings as CUW starter Ryan Baglow, who got through just one inning, and reliever Brent Behling allowed 9 hits and a trio of walks over those first two frames.
Val Keiper's team banged out a dozen hits, but 9 of those were singles. Austin Sarauer and Dan Shea each had 3x5 days for Concordia and shortstop Dan Mueller drove in three runs via his bases loaded triple in the fourth.
