Men’s soccer hosted Concordia University Irvine on Wednesday afternoon in their second PacWest matchup of this unusual 2021 season. While only two games into their schedule, Biola still remains winless after a tough loss to the Golden Eagles today, 1-4.

SLOW START

Concordia stepped on Al Barbour Field ready to commit. Within the first 45 minutes, the Golden Eagles scored two goals, leaving Biola with unanswered points going into the half.

Junior defender Izaac Zausch found himself caught up in the heat of the frustration. Zausch earned a red card and he was ejected from the game right before the end of the first.

SECOND HALF SPARK: NOT ENOUGH

However, the Eagles exited the break with a quick spark. Junior midfielder Aidan Hill found the back of the net in the beginning part of the final half. The goal and assist by freshman forward Adam Jones was the only productive push the Eagles made all night. CUI quickly fired back and scored two more goals within eight minutes of each other to ultimately run away with the win.

Despite the loss, Biola held their ground on the defensive end, catching four saves at the net. The Eagles struggled on the offensive end, only producing one goal on 12 total shots. On the other hand, CUI secured their four goals on 15 shot attempts.

The Eagles (0-2) will remain in La Mirada, Calif. to welcome Bethesda University on Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 7 p.m. Live streaming of the game can be found on the Athletics webpage.
