The Concordia men’s soccer team won 6-0 Saturday against Waldorf University, impressing fans in the Bulldog seniors’ final home game of the season.

The first half saw a slow start from both ends. It was a battle of wills to see who would get on the scoreboard first, and Concordia eventually won that battle as freshman Youssef Heggy scored a goal in the 33’. Senior Matt Schultz assisted on the goal.

The Bulldogs took this momentum and started an offensive onslaught against Waldorf for the rest of the game. Junior Braden Spath was the next Bulldogs to get on the board, scoring in the 39’ to give Concordia a 2-0 lead into the halftime break.

The second half saw Concordia get much more aggressive. Senior Victor Meneses scored in the 49’, and freshman Michael Owens scored in the 76’ on a penalty kick to make the score 4-0.

Junior D’Andre Williams then scored a goal of his own almost immediately after in the 76’, and fellow junior Ryan Brown assisted the goal. Owens then closed out the scoring with his second goal of the day in the 88’ off of an assist from Williams.

The Bulldogs attempted an astounding 21 shots, 16 of which were on the goal. Junior goalkeeper Gabriel Mendoza had an uneventful day, as Waldorf did not manage to get a single shot off.

Head Coach Jason Weides was not pleased with the slow start for Concordia, but stated, “Fortunately we had some substitutes that came on 25 minutes into the match and made a big impact. From then on I think we were pretty good and we finished the game well from there.”

When asked about the senior class, Coach Weides had many praises, saying, “The seniors have done great their whole career, but especially this year they really stepped it up and it’s been a good senior class. They really helped us this year to be where we are at. To go undefeated both to this point in the season and also here at home for the second year in a row is something special that the senior class has been a part of.”

The Bulldogs now improve to 12-0-4 overall and 6-0-4 in the Great Plains Athletic Conference. Concordia next plays on Oct. 25 at 3 p.m. against Doane University for the final game of the regular season.
