The Concordia’s women’s soccer team fell 2-0 in the first round of the NAIA Women’s Soccer National Championships against No. 3 Keiser University in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Keiser controlled the offense of the game early on, forcing senior goalkeeper Chrissy Lind to work hard. With less than a minute left in play in the first half, junior defender Jeannelle Condame came close to making a goal. Condame’s shot hit the crossbar, and the scored stayed tied 0-0 going into the halftime break.

Keiser netted a goal 57 minutes into the game and netted the second goal three minutes later to make the score 2-0. Concordia’s red card in the 71st minute slowed the momentum for the Bulldogs.

Concordia ended their season 15-6-1 on year with a 7-3 conference record. The Bulldogs will lose six seniors on the team.

“This program and this team has grown so much in the last four years, and watching these six young ladies grow along the way has been an honor,” said coach Greg Henson. “We’ve been through so much over the last four years together.  It’s been an incredible journey, and it’s going to be very surreal for me in the spring when start our off-season training, and the likes of McCoy, Chrissy, Manny, B-Run, Brandt and the Hoff aren’t with us.  I don’t know Concordia without them.”
