Concordia pulled out a 2-0 win over Bethany College after a 90-minute bout with the Swedes on Tuesday. In a defensive battle, senior goalkeeper Callum Goldsmith came up with two saves and the shutout.


After a first half that saw no soccer balls reaching the back of the net, Concordia finally scored in the 56th minute. The goal came at the hands, or rather foot, of senior Carlos Orquiz, who scored on a penalty kick.


Concordia’s second and final goal of the game came from junior Matt Schultz in the 75th minute. Ultimately, the Bulldogs completed the shutout while only allowing the Swedes five shots on goal.


Freshman defender Adrian Wambua talked about the role of the defense and the importance of improvement. “We had some stuff that we’ll need to work on, a bit disorganized at times, but we didn’t concede any goals so that’s pretty great,” he said. The men’s team has now shut out four of their six opponents this season.


The Bulldogs are now 5-1 and move their winning streak to four games. Concordia will be on the road to face off against Mount Marty on Saturday for their first GPAC contest of the year.
