Keeper Kayo Vaz, a sophomore from Fortaleza Ceara, Brazil, had three saves.
Bethany continues their conference schedule with a 7:30 p.m. game versus Southwestern College on Oct. 10 at Anderson Stadium. On Oct. 13 the team travels to Kansas Wesleyan University for a 1:30 p.m. game.
While Head Men's Soccer Coach Kevin Megli is pleased with his team's conference start, he is not satisfied with the results.
"We need to be stronger on our defensive end and more fluent on the offensive end," Megli said, noting that there is room for improvement in all areas of the game.
