YANKTON, S.D. – Junior forward Nathan Douglas continued his impressive run of goal scoring on Saturday, striking for both of Concordia’s goals in a 2-0 victory at Mount Marty (1-11, 0-5 GPAC). The Bulldogs improved to 9-3 overall and evened up at 2-2 in GPAC action.
“We controlled the play and dominated shots,” head coach Jason Weides said. “Defensively we did a great job of not allowing a shot on goal. Despite creating several scoring chances we weren't able to put a few more in the net. I really liked how we dictated the pace of the game today. We just need to convert more of our chances in future games.”
Douglas got going early when he drilled the back of the net off a throw in in the second minute. His second goal came in the 36th minute when senior midfielder Tom Gass played through to the Winnipeg, Canada native, who deposited into the net once again.
Douglas has heated up considerably after missing action early in the season due to injury. He now has eight goals on the season, including five in the last three games. He led the team with 11 goals in 2011.
Concordia’s .750 overall win percentage leads the GPAC. The Bulldogs are also tops in fewest goals allowed per game at 0.67.
Douglas and the Bulldogs will be on the road again on Tuesday when they play at Midland (5-4-2, 3-1 GPAC) at 4 p.m. They return home on Oct. 13 for homecoming when they take on Morningside (4-8-1, 2-2-1 GPAC) at 7:30 p.m.
