Home Sports Men’s Soccer Loses 4-1 to Bellevue


by Jordan McCoy


On Wednesday night, Oct. 5, the Bulldogs suffered a loss to the Bellevue University Bruins. The game ended 4-1 with the lone Concordia goal coming from a penalty kick taken by senior midfielder Carlos Acosta.

The first goal came from Bellevue in the 28th minute from a cross, which was headed into the goal. The next came in the 64th minute when the attacker beat senior goalkeeper Mark Horsburgh with a shot to the far side of the goal. In the 71st minute, the Bruins got on the board again, finishing from a corner kick. In the 75th minute, a Concordia foul gave the Bruins the opportunity to put a penalty kick away to make the score 4-0.  

The Bulldogs got on the board in the 75th minute thanks to Acosta’s perfectly placed penalty kick.

Bellevue led Concordia in shots 10-19. Acosta led the team off the bench with 3 shots and freshman forward Carlos Ferrer equaled that with 3 shots as well.

Coming off of a 3-0 win at Morningside was a factor in the loss at Bellevue, according to coach Jason Weides.

“We need to approach every game the same,” Weides said.  “I think we got in the mindset that we won a couple and we were feeling pretty good.”

Concordia, now 5-3-2 overall and 2-2 in GPAC, will face the Mount Marty College Lancers (3-7, 0-2 GPAC) in Bulldog Stadium for Homecoming Weekend, with kickoff slated for 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 8.
