MOORHEAD, Minn. - David Rosenthal scored his first goal of the season to help the St. Olaf men's soccer team notch a 2-0 victory over Concordia-Moorhead on Saturday afternoon.

Rosenthal, a first team All-America pick and MIAC player of the year as a sophomore and a third team all-region selection as a junior, tapped in a Kenzie Lund pass from the outside box in the 68th minute to give the senior forward his first goal of the season.

"It's nice to get the monkey off my back," said Rosenthal. "Hopefully I'll be able to keep the momentum going for the rest of the season."

Nick Lund also scored for the Oles by netting an unassisted goal in the 57th minute for the game's first score. The goal was Lund's third of the season.

"We kept pressing and were rewarded for dominating possession with a couple of quick goals in succession," said Rosenthal. "Concordia came out hard after halftime, but we were able to weather the storm."

St. Olaf kept the Cobber defense on its heels the entire game by attempting 18 shots on goal compared to Concordia's four.

"Overall, we showed patience and perseverance waiting for the goals to come and they did," Rosenthal said.

With the win, St. Olaf moves to 3-0 in the MIAC and 7-1 overall.

The Oles will look to continue their winning ways on Tuesday when they take on Bethany Lutheran at Rolf Mellby Field at 4 p.m.
