by Garrett Suchanek


The Concordia women’s soccer team won a double overtime thriller 1-0 against Dakota Wesleyan on the road Saturday afternoon.

The Bulldogs improved to 10-5-1 overall and 4-4-1 in GPAC.

In the first half, the Bulldogs applied pressure by putting three of their four shots on goal, but all were denied.

In the second half, both teams were aggressive and accurate with their kicks.

Concordia put four of its seven shots on frame. The Tigers put all three of their second half shots on goal, but junior goalie Chrissy Lind stopped all three to keep the game scoreless.

With the game tied at 0-0 at the end of regulation, the game went into overtime with the golden rule that the first one to score wins.

Concordia continued to put up a lot of shots, but couldn’t find the back of the net.

However, in the second overtime, the Bulldogs found some life.

In the 103rd minute, junior Jordan McCoy found sophomore Jessica Skerston who capped off the game with a well-struck ball into the back of the net.

The Bulldogs will look to carry their momentum into their next match when they host College of Saint Mary at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 28.
