Concordia Women’s soccer team fought hard on Wednesday against Midland University, resulting in a tied game.
After a 2-0 lead at halftime over Midland, the defending Great Plains Athletic Conference champions would not give up, causing the game to go into two overtimes with a final score of 2-2. Junior Mikeila Martinez scored both the goals for the Bulldogs.
Freshman Sydney Ross crossed the ball to Martinez giving her the first goal of the night at the 31’ mark. Just moments later Martinez had the opportunity to convert a penalty kick and provided a 2-0 advance over Midland before halftime.
Coming out at half, Midland showed to be the more aggressive team scoring their own goal at the 57’ mark, that goal would be scored by Dana Gomez. With just one-minute left in the game, all the Bulldogs had to do was stop Midland from scoring. However, Brittany Llanes saw her chance and scored the tying goal with just one-minute remaining in regulation.
On the night Midland outshot Concordia 12-8. Senior Lindsey Carley made six saves on the night with one being in overtime. While in overtime there would only be one shot for total, that was taken by Gomez. Concordia is now 6-2-2 in the last 10 meetings versus Midland.
