Concordia’s women’s soccer team battled it out on Wednesday night, Oct. 30, in a double overtime match against the Doane University Tigers, resulting in a win for their last home game of the regular season.
Junior Michaela Twito brought home the victory for Concordia, scoring the winning goal to earn the Bulldogs a score of 3-2.
The Bulldogs had a rough start to their season and have since built a new foundation for their team with the new players who came in.
“With some of the results in some of the games that we have had, we really look at persistency and trusting the process,” Head Women’s Soccer Coach Chris Luther said. “It’s been a big transition year with new coaching staff and new players.”
The women’s soccer team lost a big senior class last year so they have learned how to work together with newcomers, in hopes of creating new dynamics that will help them with future seasons.
“This year we have a smaller senior class, but our junior class is big and solid as far as talent and depth and then we have a great group of sophomores and freshmen,” Luther said. “I think it was important for us to just get through this year with the transitions and trusting that process so that we can build up for next year.”
Women’s soccer travels to Dakota Wesleyan University on Saturday, Nov. 2, for their last game of the regular season and to find out if they will compete in the conference tournament.
