Home Sports Concordia Men’s Soccer Survives to Championship

by Garrett Suchanek


The Concordia men’s soccer team won in a dramatic and suspenseful fashion on Saturday, Nov. 7 as the Bulldogs won 4-3 on penalty kicks to defeat Midland in Fremont and advance to the GPAC championship.

Both teams had opportunities to score throughout regulation, but neither team could manage a goal, so the game went to overtime to decide a winner.

After neither team was successful in finding a goal in overtime, the game was going to be decided by penalty kicks.

Three players in and both teams were still equal.

Midland’s fourth shooter missed the mark and opened the door for Concordia to seal the victory.

Up stepped junior goalie Mark Horsburgh. He buried the game-winning penalty kick and gave Concordia men’s soccer its first-ever trip the GPAC championship.

Horsburgh not only made the game winning goal, but collected 11 saves on the night to help Concordia advance.

The Bulldogs will look to win their first-ever GPAC championship when they take on Hastings College at 7 p.m. in Hastings on Nov. 12.
