Concordia won their fifth straight outing to start the season following a 4-0 victory over Bethany College on Tuesday. Freshman Kierstynn Garner scored two of Concordia’s goals, the first being the only goal in the first half.


The Bethany College Swedes were only able to get four shots on goal as senior Kalie Ward and junior Bradi Ore combined for a shutout. Tacking on her goals from Tuesday’s game, Garner has now scored five goals in the Bulldogs’ last three games. Early in the second half, junior Lisa McClain added a goal to Garner’s, widening the Bulldogs’ lead, and Junior Lina Kirst joined with a goal of her own in the 61st minute.


Head Coach Thomas Goines credited the team’s early success to the team’s chemistry, saying, “They’ve really got a lot of chemistry going, as well as just a lot of talent. So when you have a team that gets along together, wants to work for each other and is talented, it certainly makes things a little easier.”


The Bulldogs are now 5-0 to begin the season. The women’s soccer team will be back in action on Saturday as they travel to take on Mount Marty and begin GPAC play.
