AUBURNDALE, Florida — Concordia's losing streak reached five games with a pair of maddening losses on Saturday in the RussMatt Central Florida Invitational.

Farmingdale State defeated the Cobbers in two one-run games, 4-3 and 3-2.

In the first game, the Cobbers trailed 4-2 after four but pulled within a run in the fifth when Max Boran was hit by a pitch and scored on Thomas Horan's two-out double.

But Farmingdale reliever Michael Camardi pitched perfect ball, striking out four, over the final 2-1/3 innings to get the same for winner Johnny Dougherty.

Horan, Isaac Henkemeyer-Howe and Wyatt Gunkel all had hits and RBI.


In the second game, the Cobbers led 2-1 heading into the bottom of the seventh and final inning, but Farmingdale's Jordan Lambert singled in the tying run and the winning run scored on a Cobber error.

Concordia had just two hits — a Matt Gruber double and Horan's RBI triple — and Henkemeyer-Howe had an RBI.

The Cobbers, now 2-6, are off Sunday before resuming play in the invite with two games against Loras on Monday, March 13.
