Carthage and CUW spent 110 minutes of scoreless soccer determining what both coaches knew going into the contest. "We appear to be pretty evenly matched," had quipped Falcon mentor Tom Saleska. Concordia (1-1-2) had the better of play in the opening half last evening, but host Carthage (1-1-2) took control of the midfield in the later stages as CUW wore down. "We just hung on at the end," was Saleska's assessment. "We have held up fairly well against some strong early-season opposition and have had good leadership."
Goalie Tom Anderson had 10 saves for the Falcons while Carthage netminder Taao Scarnato needed to make six stops. The Red Men got off 8 shots in the two 10 minute overtime sessions and hit the top bar on one of those efforts. CUW hosts UW- Superior on Sunday at 1:00pm in another non-conference clash.
