Concordia lost to Northwestern College on Saturday, Nov. 3.
Northwestern got off to a fast start, scoring a touchdown just two and a half minutes into the game. Later in the quarter, they tacked on another one, giving them a 14-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.
After a period of down time in the second quarter, Northwestern scored another touchdown, upping the score to 21-0. Concordia was able to answer with a touchdown of their own on a 9-yard reception by senior Vincent Beasley. Not long afterwards, Northwestern scored again to take a 28-7 lead at the half.
Northwestern scored two more touchdowns in the third quarter to increase to a lead of 42-7. In the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs were graced by a 41-yard receiving touchdown by freshman Korrell Koehlmoos. Then Beasley scored his second touchdown of the game on a 37-yard reception. To top it off, junior Ryan Durdon ran in a 7-yard touchdown.
This late surge was not enough to catch up with Northwestern, and the Bulldogs lost 28-42. Despite the loss, junior Andrew Perea broke the school record for passing yards in a game with 455.
Concordia’s next game is at Doane University on Saturday, Nov. 10.
