Men's Soccer preps for 2022 season

(Ann Arbor, MI) – Concordia men's soccer is getting ready to start their 2022 season. The Cardinals will look to make improvements this year as the team moves towards a WHAC tournament appearance. First-year head coach Jason Clare brings back 19 players while adding 9 newcomers.


2021 Season Review

Concordia finished 2-15 overall last season. The Cardinals won their first 2 games by a shutout, blanking Olivet 2-0 and Alma 4-0. CUAA faced a difficult WHAC conference slate but managed to play in some close games. The team took UNOH to overtime but fell 3-2. CUAA hosted rival Siena Heights late in the year and fired 21 shots, dropping a close 2-1 contest.


2022 Schedule Outlook

Concordia opens their 2022 season with a home contest against Alma on September 1. The team will then head on to road to face Spring Arbor, Mount Vernon Nazarene, and Ohio Christian. The Cardinals return home to open WHAC play against Aquinas on September 24. After another key WHAC home match against #7 Indiana Tech, the Cardinals finish the month with a non-conference match at Calvin.

October begins with a rivalry game at Siena Heights. After playing at Cleary and UM-Dearborn, the team returns home to host Lourdes on October 19. The homestand continues with matches against Rochester and #RV UNOH. The regular season finishes with a road contest at Cornerstone on October 29.

If the Cardinals finish among the top 8 teams in the WHAC, they will qualify for the conference tournament.
