MOORHEAD, Minnesota – The MSOE hockey team suffered a 5-2 defeat at the hands of Concordia College Wednesday night at the Moorhead Sports Center.
The Raiders (2-6-1) jumped out to a 2-0 lead for the second-straight game but could not hold off the Cobbers (7-2-2), who scored four-straight goals to pull ahead.
Czarnecki opened the scoring just under six minutes into the game for his first collegiate goal. Turer then doubled the advantage just over three minutes later. Concordia pulled a goal back on the power play at the 10:40 but the Red & White led 2-1 after the opening period.
The hosts then struck for two goals in the second period, an even-strength goal at 5:36 and a short-handed score at 8:03 to pull ahead for good. They then made it 4-2, 8:23 into the third period with another power play goal.
Ostrowski gave MSOE second life with his second goal of the second, coming with just under five minutes remaining in regulation. He was assisted by Czarnecki and freshman Eliot Friedow.
The Raiders pulled their goalie with 1:11 remaining in the game and Concordia was able to put the game out of reach with an empty-net goal 22 seconds later.
Sophomore Harry Vangellow made his first collegiate start and made 24 saves in the game. MSOE outshot the Cobbers 37-29 in the game. The Red & White went 0-for-2 on power plays while CC was 2-for-5.
The Raiders continue the midweek road trip at Bethel Wednesday night in the Twin Cities.
