The Concordia men’s soccer team beat the Jamestown University Jimmies 2-1 after a trek up to Jamestown, North Dakota Saturday afternoon. The Bulldog men fended off an explosive Jamestown offense to claw their way back in the second half.

The Jimmies went straight to work after the first whistle and mercilessly attacked the ball. In the fourth minute, Jamestown’s freshman Daniel Aburto snuck a quick shot past a Concordia defender and junior goalie Gabriel Mendoza to score. Undaunted, the Bulldogs wore down the Jamestown offense and kept their opponents to one point for the game.

Concordia’s points came in the second half, with both goals coming from junior D’Andre Williams. The first came in the 48th minute, when Williams took a wide shot off a pass from sophomore Slade Leicht. The ball curved right past the Jamestown goalie’s outstretched arms and into the goal. Williams made the game-winning goal in the 83rd minute unassisted off another wide shot to slip the ball into the back of the net.

Concordia outshot Jamestown by far, with 11 shots compared to the Jimmies’ four. Junior Carter Hinman led the team in shots with three for the day. Junior Martin Herrera put up two shots on goal as well. Mendoza recorded one save for the game. The Bulldogs also had four corner kicks while Jamestown only had one.

The men remain undefeated with an 11-0-2 overall record and a 5-0-2 record in the Great Plains Athletic Conference. They will take a small break before traveling to Hastings on Oct. 14 at 5:30 p.m. to face Nebraska rival Hastings College.
