Box Score: CUW 9, SU 3
GEORGETOWN, Texas - Danny Dahms led a first half offensive attack that gave Concordia University Wisconsin (2-3) a 9-3 non-conference victory over Southwestern University on Monday night.
The Falcons converted 3-of-6 extra man opportunities, succeeded on 20 of 24 clear attempts, and received a solid performance from goalie Zack Davis between the pipes. During CUW's current two-game winning streak, the Falcons have outscored opponents 15-3 in the first half.
CUW controlled the game from the start, putting six unanswered goals on the scoreboard before SU tallied an unassisted score. The Falcons responded once more prior to the break to take a 7-1 lead at the intermission and crusied to the victory.
Dahms scored three goals and assisted on two more to lead all players with five points while grabbing a game-high eight ground balls. The sophomore midfielder from Calgary, Alberta, has recorded seven goals in the last two games.
Sophomores Peter Morton (Albany, Ga.) and Sam Wladyka (Winnipeg, Manitoba) each scored twice for the Falcons. In all, five players finished with a point in the victory. Davis (sophomore, La Porte, Ind.) earned the victory after saving 14 shot attempts.
CUW held a 33-15 shot advantage and a 32-18 in ground balls during the opening half.
Southwestern's Chris O'Quain finished with eight saves, but was tagged with the loss after allowing eight goals in 50 minutes of action.
CUW returns to the field for a non-conference matchup today at 3 p.m. (CST) against the University of Dallas to complete its Texas spring break road trip.
