Falcons squeak past Cougars

River Forest, IL

Ryan Middendorf's undefeated booters (5-0-2 in the NAC) may have gotten more of a challenge than they bargained for from CU- Chicago (2-4-0) yesterday- hanging on for a 2-1 triumph.

Although CUW dominated first half possession, the score was 0-0 at intermission. Cathy Palese finally found the back of the net eight minuters into the second half on a one touch goal off a perfect cross to give the Falcons a lead. When Kelly Sippel added a goal ten minutes later it appeared Concordia was home free.

A CU-Chicago tally cut the margin in half with 15 minutes remaining, however, and CUW had to hang on after the momentum change. The Falcons (7-3-2 overall) host Lake Forest in a non-conference match Tuesday at 4:30pm.
