SEWARD, Neb. – After an uneventful week with both matches postponed, the Concordia Men’s Soccer team continues their GPAC slate this week. The Bulldogs host Doane on Wednesday in their lone match this week. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m.

Wednesday, Oct. 28 vs. Doane (3-4, 3-4), 8 p.m.


Last week’s home match against Briar Cliff was postponed due to the Chargers dealing with COVID-19 related issues. The game against Briar Cliff will now be the season finale as it has been rescheduled for Nov. 14, at 3:30 p.m. Saturday’s match at Presentation was postponed due to mother nature as forecasts were calling for nearly ten inches of snow. The game will now take place on Oct. 31 at 1 p.m.

The Bulldogs currently sit in third place in the GPAC standings. Concordia trails second-place Briar Cliff by a half-game and first place Hastings by a game and a half.

Concordia will welcome Doane to town on Wednesday as they continue their rivalry series. The series has been in the Bulldogs favor in the past decade as the Bulldogs have not lost to the Tigers since 2012.

Doane (3-4) is coming off of a 4-2 win over Dordt this past Saturday. The Tigers are averaging 2.14 goals per game while allowing 2.43 goals per game on the year. The Tigers rank sixth in the GPAC as they average 7.71 shots on goal per game. Forward Kobi Smith leads the offensive attack for Doane with his team-best four goals so far this season. The Tigers were slated at 10th in the 2020 GPAC Preseason Coaches’ Poll.

Following the game against Doane, the Bulldogs will travel to Fremont, Neb., on Nov. 4., as they square off against Midland. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. CT.
