NORTHFIELD, Minn. — Concordia tied the game late to force overtime and a shootout against St. Olaf on Saturday in Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference men's hockey. St. Olaf won the shootout 2-1, but the game was scored a 3-3 tie.

Isaac Henkemeyer-Howe scored for the Cobbers in the second period on assists from Hunter Olson and Alex Stoley to tie the game 1-1. Matthew Pointer then put St. Olaf up 2-1 with a goal 17 minutes, 26 seconds into the second period. Concordia's Cole O'Connell buried the equalizer on assists from Kain Stevenson and Tyler Bossert with 10 seconds left in the frame.

Luke Suter scored his second of the game for St. Olaf 7:48 into the third period. Mason Plante came up clutch with under four minutes remaining in regulation to score the tying goal for the Cobbers, assisted by Bossert and Henkemeyer-Howe.

No one scored in either overtime period, so the game went to a shootout where St. Olaf held a 2-1 edge.

Concordia (4-3-2, 2-1-1 MIAC) is off until Dec. 3, when the Cobbers host Augsburg for a two-game tilt.
