Both Concordia soccer teams won against the York University Panthers Wednesday night. The men started the night off with a 3-1 win and the ladies ended it with a 1-0 victory.

The men’s team had one lapse in the second minute that led to an early York lead. However, the Bulldogs wasted no time in firing right back, as junior Carter Hinman scored in the fifth minute. Junior Martin Herrera assisted Hinman’s second goal of the season.

The game then steadied into a tight defensive battle until Concordia broke loose again and senior Victor Meneses scored in the fortieth minute. Junior D’Andre Williams assisted on Meneses’s first goal of the season. The goal that put the nail in the coffin came in the sixty-fifth minute of play, when senior Isaiah Shaddick scored his second goal of the season to help propel the Bulldogs to victory.

The Concordia defense was on full display, only allowing four shots to the Bulldogs’ 11. Sophomore Nolan Fuelberth recorded one save on one goal attempted.

The women’s game saw a slower-paced first half with no goals scored by either side. The lone goal of the night came from sophomore Savannah Andrews in the fifty-ninth minute. Andrews has had a phenomenal start to the season, scoring with four of the team’s seven total season goals. Fellow sophomore Kierstynn Garner assisted the goal to help Concordia fight for another win.

The women also showed fantastic defense, allowing four shots, two of which were on the goal. Senior Bradi Ore saved both shots on goal, completing the shutout for the ladies.

Both the men’s and women’s teams remain undefeated with the men at 2-0 and the women at 3-0. They look to keep the winning streaks alive as they face Tabor College on Saturday, Sept. 2 at Bulldog Stadium.
