Head Women's Soccer Coach, Sean McMannis, said that his team's goal is to play strong for the rest of the season.
"This was a foundation year for something new to happen at Bethany for women's soccer. A new time to get serious about the game and not to be over looked," McMannis said.
He added that his team must push forward and play soccer "the way we have been working on."
"Then it's my job to go recruit the necessary players to be a difference-maker," McMannis said.
Bethany hosts Friends University on Oct. 19. The remainder of the season will be on the road Oct. 22 at McPherson College, Oct. 26 at Bethel College and Oct. 29 at Tabor College.
