The Concordia women and men’s soccer teams both defeated the Mount Marty University Lancers 6-0 and 2-1 respectively Saturday night in Yankton, S.D. The soccer teams rounded out homecoming weekend’s sporting events with the women continuing their undefeated season and the men handing the Lancers their first loss of the season.


The Bulldog women dominated on the field throughout the game, rarely giving the Lancers a chance to go on the attack. Freshman Kierstynn Garner scored the first goal of the game in the 19th minute and sophomore Kassidy Johnson scored another in the 30th minute with an assist from freshman Niah Kirchner.


Garner scored another goal in the 61st minute with an assist from freshman Elena Ruiz. Four minutes later, junior Lina Kirst scored the fourth goal of the night with an assist from fellow junior Allee Downing. Freshman Savannah Andrews and junior Ellie Eason scored the final goals of the night in the 76th and 78th minutes respectively.


The men faced a much more difficult challenge in their game against the Lancers. The Lancers were 5-0-1 in the season and their gameplay showed the reason why. Concordia and Mount Marty did not score a single goal in the first half of the game. The two teams battled to find an opportunity to make offensive moves against each others’ stalwart defenses.


The Bulldogs found their opportunity to change the tide of the game in the second half, and sophomore Jarrod Henson made a goal in the 53rd minute. Mount Marty managed to strike back later in the half, but Concordia freshman Miguel Navarro quickly responded and scored the second and final goal of the game with an assist from sophomore Martin Herrera.


The women are now 6-0 overall and 1-0 in the Great Plains Athletic Conference. The men are 6-1 overall and 1-0 in the GPAC. Both teams play again on Sept. 21 against Dordt University in Sioux Center, Iowa. The women start off the night at 5 p.m. and the men play right after at 7:15 p.m.
