Posted on January 30th, 2016 by


ST. PETER, Minn. – The Gustavus Adolphus College men’s hockey team suffered a 3-0 shutout by Concordia College on Saturday at Don Roberts Ice Rink. While the Gusties fought hard, with both teams going scoreless in the first period, Gustavus allowed three Cobber goals during the remainder of the game. The loss brings the Gusties to 4-11-4 overall and 3-5-2 in the MIAC, while the Cobbers improve to 8-9-2 overall and 6-3-1 in the league.

The first period went scoreless, despite Gustavus’s 12 shots on goal versus Concordia’s seven. The Cobbers had two power play opportunities, but were still unable to find the back of the net, going into the second tied at zero.

Concordia upped its game, scoring two goals in the second. The first goal came at the 5:25 mark from Jon Grebosky with the assist going to Mario Bianchi and Zach Doerring. This marks Grebosky’s tenth goal of the season, while Bianchi and Doerring improve their number of assists to four and ten, respectively. The Cobbers’ second goal of the period was netted by Garrett Hendrickson, and assisted by Jordie Bancroft and Jake Zeleznikar. Hendrickson’s goal gave Concordia a two-goal advantage going into the third period 2-0.

Not even two minutes into the final period, the Cobbers found the back of the net for a third time. The goal came from Adam Wiertzema, as he scored his third goal of the season after only 1:55 of play, with an assist from Tucker Coborn and Doerring. In the end, Gustavus was defeated 3-0, with goalie Chris Amsden (Fy., St. Peter, Minn.) tallying 20 saves.

Gustavus outshot Concordia 27-23 in total, but gave the man-advantage to the Cobbers four times throughout the game, versus only two Gustie power plays. Concordia was also nearly doubled the number of Gustie faceoff wins 41-24.

The Gusties play at home on Friday, Feb. 5, as they host Saint Mary’s University with faceoff set for 7:05 p.m.
