Concordia (0-1) plays its second-straight contest against a brand new foe after falling in its season opener at Saint Michael's College 3-0 on Saturday, Sept. 7.

Senior midfielder Cristian Perez (Boynton Beach, Fla.) and junior forward Dennis Limani (Norderstedt, Germany) both took two shots in the season opener, with all of Limani's landing on target. Senior defender Valmed Marki (Yonkers, N.Y.), sophomore midfielder Nikolas Piel (Bremen, Germany) and junior forward Nemanja Zivanovic (Belgrade, Serbia) all added a quality shot attempt at Saint Michael's.

Sophomore keeper Christopher Kaev (Melbourne, Australia) tallied a team-best two saves in 17:34 minutes of play against the Purple Knights, while junior goalie Mikael Varin (Toulouse, France) logged 75:26 minutes with one save and three goals allowed.
