The Concordia football team fell to the Doane University Tigers Saturday evening in Crete, Neb. in a close 12-10 game.


Concordia’s chances looked good coming out of the first quarter with a touchdown over scoreless Doane. Even with a missed field goal, the Bulldog defense held strong against whatever the Tigers threw at them.


However, tides began to change in the second quarter. Concordia had a good drive right up to the endzone, but was forced to attempt another field goal, which was blocked by the Doane defense. Doane made their own field goal right before the end of the quarter, making the score 7-3 at half.


Doane’s kicker continued to challenge Concordia as the third quarter went by, making two more field goals narrowly and taking the lead from the Bulldogs. Early in the fourth quarter, Concordia finally managed to make a field goal of their own, creating a one-point lead. Doane then kicked one last field goal with 1:21 left in the game to take the score to 12-10.


Quarterback Austin Jablonski passed for 83 yards and led the team in rushing yards with 95. Tight end Daylan Russell had the most passing yards with 33. Linebacker Michael Grindey had the most tackles of the game with 13. 


The Concordia football team are now 0-1 both overall and in the Great Plains Athletic Conference. They have their bye week this coming Saturday, but their next game on Sep. 17 will be the homecoming game against Hastings University.
