The Concordia men’s soccer team won 4-1 against Midland University Wednesday evening. The Bulldogs played a very disciplined game and put on pressure for most of the game to win convincingly.
Concordia came out fast paced and scored in the fifth minute. Junior Carter Hinman scored his eighth goal of the season off of an assist from senior Isaiah Shaddick. Shaddick again assisted junior Braden Spath in the 22nd minute. This was Spath’s first goal of the year. Concordia went into half-time up 2-0, looking very solid.
Through the first 20 minutes of the second half, no goals were scored by either side. In the 66th minute freshman Ferdi Hagan scored his second goal of the season off of an assist from junior Martin Herrera. In the late stages, Midland managed to score a goal in the 88th, but Concordia came back and scored within seconds as Junior Ryan Wokutch scored his second goal of the season.
The Bulldogs took 18 shots throughout the game, with 12 of them on the goal. Sophomore goalkeeper Nolan Fuelberth also recorded two saves.
When asked about his thoughts on the game, coach Jason Weides stated, “Overall it was a great game and a really great response – immediately they score, [then] we come back and score straight away, so there are a lot of positives from this game.”
The Bulldogs are now 9-0-1 overall and 3-0-1 in the Great Plains Athletic Conference. Coach Weides will take his team on the road on Saturday, Sept. 30 to Mitchell, South Dakota to face Dakota Wesleyan University at 3 p.m.
