Naylor scores twice, propels Concordia into first place

October 21, 2014

Zac Naylor SoccerWhen the Concordia University men’s soccer team recruited Anchorage’s Zak Naylor it was because of his strength, technique and ability to score goals.

He hasn’t disappointed.

Naylor bagged two more goals in a 4-0 road win over Northwest University in Washington in a battle for first place in the Cascade Collegiate Conference.

The junior transfer has four goals and one assist in 13 games this season. His nine points are tied for third most on the NAIA team out of Portland.

Naylor, of South High fame, came to Concordia from Edmonds Community College, where he scored 18 goals in two seasons.

He has always had a nose for the goal and proved it against Northwest in the 12th minute when he pounced on a loose ball off a header and then again in the 53rd minute when he cleaned up a sloppy clear by the goalkeeper.

It was a big weekend for the Naylor family – Zac scored two goals and lil sister Jordan was named Miss Alaska High School for 2015.
