Biola women’s soccer lost to Concordia 3-1 in a game that tested Biola’s defense and persistence. Biola’s record fell to 3-8-1 overall and 2-3-0 in conference play in a tightly contested battle against the Concordia Eagles.


Biola struggled early on regarding possession of the ball as Concordia racked up three shots within the first ten minutes along with two corner kicks. Concordia maintained control of the ball and kept Biola on defense as they finished the first half with 10 shots, and, after a save from goalie Riley Urusqua, midfielder Daniela Filipovic scored and put her team on the board, 1-0.

Concordia continued their physical play and scored shortly after their first and brought a 2-0 lead into halftime as they limited Biola to only two shots. Still, Boyer recorded four saves in the half, keeping the Eagles in the game, not allowing it to get out of hand just yet. Substitute Savannah Tavares entered in the second half in Boyer’s place hoping to contain Concordia.

Biola remained in striking distance as redshirt senior Frances Andrade scored less than eight minutes into the half making the game more manageable at 2-1. Senior Jadenn Carrillo extended the lead for Concordia shortly after this on her second straight goal of the game on a headshot, bringing her 2022 season total to four, all of them impressively being scored in the last three games. 

This put Concordia out of reach for the remainder of the game although freshman Peyton Nelson matched Biola’s first half shot attempts as she had two in three minutes in the closing minutes of the game. Concordia would give the home crowd the victory with three goals on a blistering 19 total shots as they would take four in the final 25 minutes, continuing their aggressive play style to secure the win.
