Bethany Head Coach Jamie Cruce said he was very pleased with the team's effort, with several individuals playing well on both sides of the ball.
"Our offense was able to establish our running game early on, which helped us overcome the fact that we had a much different offensive line from the previous week," Cruce said. "Defensively we were able to hold them scoreless, which is always a difficult thing to do," Cruce added.
"Overall we were pleased with the win and are looking forward to continuing to improve," he said.
The Swedes will next face rival Kansas Wesleyan University at 7 p.m. Sept. 22 at Anderson Stadium in the two teams' 100th meeting.

Special festivities will start with a joint tailgate party beginning at 5:30 p.m. on the practice field just west of the stadium. The tailgate will be moved inside Stroble-Gibson Gymnasium in case of rain.
