Concordia men play to draw with Dordt

SEWARD, Neb. – On Saturday, Oct. 3 the Concordia men’s soccer team faced off with Dordt College and played to a 0-0 draw after 110 minutes of soccer at Bulldog Stadium. Keeper Mark Horsburgh marked up six saves on the night.

Said head coach Jason Weides, “There were moments I felt we played really sharp, especially early on in the contest. I thought we were hitting well. We weren’t able to get that first goal to reward us for good play. The game just wore on. There were little moments when we played well, but I think we got a little panicked as the clock clicked down.”

The Bulldogs outshot the Defenders 24-14 while the shots on goal were even at seven apiece.  

“We had 24 shots which is normally enough to get a goal,” Weides noted. “We didn’t put enough on frame and didn’t test the keeper enough. I think we created enough chances to win the game, but we couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net which is frustrating.”

Horsburgh played all 110 minutes vs the Defenders and saved six shots. Jack McCool filled keeper duties for Dordt and tallied seven saves on the night.

The Bulldogs move to 5-4-1 (0-2-1 GPAC) on the season. The Defenders are now 4-5-1 (1-2-1 GPAC) this year.

The Concordia men’s soccer team will return to the pitch at Bulldog Stadium on Wednesday, Oct. 3. The Warriors of Midland University will pay a visit for an 8 p.m. kick off. A live webcast will be available on the Concordia Sports Network.
