College Recap - CCC & Frontier: Lone shot of game stuns NAIA No. 1 Concordia

In the CCC, the nation's top-ranked Concordia women suffered a stunning overtime defeat at the hands of Northwest Christian on their lone shot of the match and the College of Idaho men and women had mixed results. The Great Falls men and women had busy weeks with a trip to California followed by important Frontier Conference contests with Westminster.


College of Idaho 5 :: 1 Evergreen
Brittney Lacey (Boise, ID) put the Yotes on the board in the 18th minute and a corner doubled the lead four minutes before the break. The restart from Brianna Blair (Nampa, ID) was flicked on by Hallie Taufoou (Meridian, ID) to Jessica Ayala (Eagle, ID), who nodded it in. Evergreen struck back six minutes into the second half before CI ran off three unanswered. Sarah Hicks (Boise, ID) restored the two-goal lead with Ayala finding Lacey in the 73rd and McKenzie Anderson capping things in the 85th. – MORE  

Concordia 2 :: 1 Corban
Level from a pair of goals in the first half from a Corban corner deflected in off a defender and an Alicia Alarcon-Evans strike, Concordia found the winner in the 80th minute when Alarcon-Evans delivered a cross into the box that McKayla Madison (Bend, OR) one-timed past the keeper.
