Falcon hockey women get a weekend split

Lake Forest, IL

What a difference a day makes! One day after falling 4-0 to the same opponent at home, the Falcon skaters rebounded with an impressive 6-2 road win. "This was a really good win for us- to beat the defending champions on their ice is exciting."

Alisha Java was the catalyst with "the first hat trick in Concordia history", including the first two CUW tallies after the Falcons had fallen behind 1-0. "Our defense set up the opportunities and our offensive players wanted it today. They worked hard and crashed the nets."

Sarah Luberda, April Forar, and Stephanie Boehm also scored for Jim Ingman's team which improved to 10-8-1 and 8-5-1 in the NCHA.

Lake Forest is 9-5-2 but only 5-5-2 in league play after this crucial weekend series. "Home ice is big in the playoffs and this series helped set us up for that," praised Ingman.

The Falcons outshot the hosts 33-30 with Lea Jondal making 28 saves.
