Alverno Stumped by Concordia Chicago in Wednesday Matchup

RIVER FOREST, Ill. – The Alverno soccer team dropped a road decision to the Concordia Chicago Cougars on Wednesday afternoon, falling by a 10-0 score on the Concordia Stadium Field.

Freshman goalkeeper Kenzie Bermudez made a career-high 24 saves on the match, which is also ninth most on the single-game saves record as she faced 51 shots on the match. She made 13 saves in the opening half, before stopping another 11 shots in the second period.

Alverno was only able to muster one shot against the stout Cougar defense, with that lone attempt coming off the foot of freshman Sami Martinez in the second half.

Alverno trailed 6-0 at the halftime break before Concordia Chicago added four more goals in the second half to cap off the scoring on the afternoon.

Alverno (4-7-0, 0-4-0 NACC) will resume league play tomorrow afternoon when the team hosts the Dominican Stars for a 3:30 p.m. start on Thursday afternoon on the Alverno Soccer Field.
