Doane Rallies to Top Bulldogs in Overtime
Concordia picked up two goals in the first 18 minutes of play but Doane continued to battle and came away with a 3-2 victory in double overtime on Tuesday evening in Seward. The win evened the Tiger's record a 4-4 while they improved to 3-0 in the GPAC.
The Bulldogs scored in the second minute of the game to take a 1-0 lead but a misplayed ball by the Concordia defense gave the Tigers an own goal as a pass was headed into the Tiger goal by a Bulldog player.
In the 16th minute of play, Tiger goalkeeper Chris Kavinsky was injured and the Tigers turned to freshman Greg Beall. The first shot Beall saw came from a header off a corner kick and it went into the goal to give the Bulldogs a 2-1 lead. The Tiger defense stiffened and Beall settled in and the Tigers held Concordia scoreless for the final 98 minutes of play.
Along the way in the second half, the Tigers tied the game on a goal by Devon Strecker in the 67th minute of play.
In the first overtime, Doane had the only shot attempt but it was wide. In the second overtime, each team had a shot attempt. Concordia's was wide while Juan Padilla found the net for the game-winnner as he took a pass from Strecker.
The game was a rough one as 37 fouls were called, 27 on the Bulldogs. Doane was issued two yellow cards early in the game but Concordia received six yellow cards and a red card after the Kavinsky injury.
Doane will be at Briar Cliff on September 26.
