Concordia’s men’s soccer team suffered their first loss of the season against Kansas Wesleyan University on Sept. 25t, resulting in a score of 1-2. Despite the team’s struggle to score in the first half, they still had their fans’ support.
“I love my Bulldogs,” junior Rachel Deppe said. “I love watching men’s soccer because they’re good and always entertaining.”
The Bulldogs fought hard and tied the game up with 10 minutes left of the second half, sending their match into overtime. However, Kansas Wesleyan came back to score again, ending the Bulldogs’ efforts for the night.
“I think the result obviously wasn’t what we wanted it to be, but the team picked it up as the game went on,” senior forward David Carrasco said. “It was a good fight by the team, and it helps us grow and stay humble for what’s next.”
The Bulldogs are remaining focused and calm going into their next matches and the rest of the season.
“The goal is to make a statement as we aim to win the title of the regular season, but that’s only achieved one game at a time,” Carrasco said. “Now we move on from today’s result and focus on our conference game on Saturday.”
Men’s soccer will return to Bulldog Stadium on Oct. 5 for a conference match against Mount Marty College.
