MOORHEAD — The good news for Concordia is it snapped a three-game losing streak. Bad news, it wasn't with a win.

The Cobbers dominated offensively but had to settle for a 0-0 result against St. Mary's on Saturday.

The Cobbers had a 23-9 edge on shots and a 12-3 advantage in shots on goal. But the Cardinals defense and goalkeeper kept Concordia out of the net.

St. Mary's goalkeeper Daniel Sessler stopped all 12 shots. Concordia's Erick Torres made three saves.

The Cobbers upped their record to 1-2-1 in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and 2-7-1 overall. They play at Gustavus at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
