Prairie Wolves best Bulldog men on the pitch

SEWARD, Neb. – The Concordia University men’s soccer team was not able to convert nine shots on goal into a win verses Nebraska Wesleyan Wednesday, Oct. 14. The Prairie Wolves took the 3-0 victory in Bulldog Stadium.

Head coach Jason Weides said, “I thought Nebraska Wesleyan played really sharp tonight and we played really poor…we dug ourselves a big hole being down 2-0 at half. I thought we responded well at half time and fixed a few issues and played better the second half but it just wasn’t good enough.”

The Bulldogs outshot the Prairie Wolves 15-10 and had the advantage in shots on goal, 9-5. Corner kicks were even at five apiece.

Mark Horsburgh was the keeper for the Bulldogs and recorded two saves in 90 minutes of action. Jack Nespor played in the first 81 minutes for NWU recording nine saves. In the final minutes of the contest Christian Lomax filled the net for the Prairie Wolves.

Goals for Nebraska Wesleyan in the first half came from Jake Kennedy at 5:39 and 21:33. With just over 22 minutes left in the tilt, Brady Blazek scored the final goal for the Prairie Wolves.

On upcoming contests Weides said, “We need to make sure we come out with the right tempo to start the game, we just didn’t do that tonight.”

Up next on the Bulldogs’ schedule is Briar Cliff University (6-5, 3-2 GPAC). The match will take place at Bulldog Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 17 at 3:30 p.m.
