MOORHEAD -- Aaron Lindahl missed all but 10 games his junior year after sustaining a season-ending knee injury.

But the Benson graduate is back this year and hitting the mark for the Concordia Cobbers (2-2).


On Saturday the 6-foot-4 senior guard scored 19 points as the Cobbers dipped UW-Superior 95-90 in two overtimes at the Yellowjackets' Invite.

The next day, again coming off the bench, he plunked for 13 points in a 90-84 setback to UW-River Falls.

Lindahl and the Cobbers debuted at Morris against the Minnesota Morris Cougars with 24 points in a 78-76 on Nov. 15.

The Cobbers' roster also includes three area athletes, each listed as a freshman guard: Brett Bergeson of Montevideo, Corey Abbas of Renville and Blake Johnsrud of Starbuck.
