Biola entered Wednesday’s match looking to build some momentum on the season. They came very close to doing just that, playing the Concordia Golden Eagles close to the very end. The score differential never reached more than three goals. Although it was close, Biola ultimately fell to the Golden Eagles with a final score of 10-8, dropping their season record to 10-16.


The Golden Eagles started the game hot, jumping out to a 2-0 lead in the first quarter. Biola responded in the second quarter when junior Utility player Maxwell Osborn scored the game- tying goal.

Concordia regained the lead and extended it to a 6-3 advantage. Biola clawed their way back and cut the lead down to one, with Osborn making a big goal to close the third quarter. Throughout the 2nd and 3rd quarters, Biola and Concordia mirrored each other, both scoring two and four a piece in each quarter respectively. Concordia played stout defense in the final quarter, which proved to be the difference in the game.

Up next, Biola will face the Ottawa Spirit, on Friday, Oct. 28 at 9 a.m. Stats from the match can be found on the Biola Athletics website.
