LOVES PARKS, Ill. - The Rockford University men's soccer team took to the field Wednesday night to face off against Concordia University of Chicago. The game did not play out as the Regents had hoped, as they fell to the Cougars 4-1.

It did not take long for the scoring to open up as the Cougars found the net seven minutes into the game. CUC would go on to score two more goals before the Regents found an answer. In the 31st minute of the game, Bailey Beard (Rockford, Ill.) buried the ball into the back of the net in the box off a pass from Cruz Marquez (Arvada, Colo.). That score would make the game 3-1 at the half. RU would buckle down defensively as as they only allowed one goal in the second. The Regents battled hard in the second, but could not find the back of the net.

Rockford returns to action on Saturday, September 30 at home as they face off against MSOE. The match is scheduled for a 4:30 PM start time.
