Second-half woes sink Bethany

OTTAWA — Bethany College’s football team simply can’t finish what it starts.

The Swedes once again were in solid position at halftime of their KCAC game with Ottawa University on Saturday, dominating the action for a 22-12 lead.

But it was all OU in the second half as it outscored the Swedes 34-3 for a 46-25 victory, keeping the Swedes winless on the year.

It was OU’s first win after three straight losses, all to ranked teams.

Isaiah Salazar threw for 202 yards and a touchdown, but was lost in the third quarter and it all went south from there for the Swedes.

The Swedes also lost running back Louie Gonzales to an injury in the third quarter as two of their main playmakers spent the rest of the game as spectators. Gonzales had been gashing the OU defense with 66 yards on just 12 carries.

James Augusta drilled four field goals for the Swedes. Dalton Goodwin caught a TD pass from Salazar for the lone offensive touchdown as Damian Bell-White had a pick-six for the other, sprinting 35 yards to paydirt.

Bethany did have 354 yards of total offense, 289 of that through the air. OU had 256 yards rushing and 200 passing in a nice balanced attack.

The 0-4 Swedes host Saint Mary on Saturday.

POINT LOOKOUT, Mo. —Central Christian College’s final day in the College of the Ozarks Chick-fil-A Invitational came up empty on Saturday.

The Lady Tigers lost to Haskell (14-25, 24-26, 17-25). Kasi Kraus had 10 kills and Desiree Padilla accumulated 18 digs. Hannah Crandall totaled 9 assists.

CCC then lost to Evangel (10-25, 16-25, 13-25). Kraus again led in kills with 8 and she also led in digs with 9. Crandall had 13 assists.

CCC is now 4-12 on the year. It goes on the road Thursday to Lincoln, Neb., to take on Union College.

Mac kickers sweep St. Gregory's

SHAWNEE, Okla. — It was bounce-back Saturday for McPherson College’s soccer teams.

After both Bulldog teams lost their first games of the season on Thursday, they rebounded against St. Gregory’s.

The men totally dominated St. Gregory’s even if the 1-0 score didn’t reflect it. Mac had a whopping 19-2 advantage in shots to improve to 5-1-1 on the season.

Brayam De La Cruz scored the Mac goal 17 minutes into the game after an assist by Edward Gomez.

Aaron Parrott was in goal for the first half, then turned it over to Arthur Lamparter as he completed the shutout.

“We controlled the match throughout, but just couldn't finish," McPherson coach Doug Quint said. "That is two games in a row where we lacked composure in front of the goal. Defensively, we kept things organized and played well today."

Mac opens KCAC play on Wednesday in Salina against Kansas Wesleyan, which has been the KCAC’s best rivalry the last 10 years. The two teams had ruled the conference until Oklahoma Wesleyan was added last year.

• MAC WOMEN 1, ST. GREGORY’S 0 — Cydney Lewis’ goal in the 41st minute gave Mac the win.

The Bulldogs had only a 9-8 advantage in shots. Sheryl Evans had another stellar day in goal to post her fourth shutout.

“"Our women controlled the match throughout and did a good job of being organized defensively," Quint said. "The ladies did a great job limiting attacks and keeping [SGU all-time leading scorer Abi Housecraft] in check."

Mac is now 4-1 on the season and plays Wednesday in Salina against Kansas Wesleyan, perhaps the team to beat in the KCAC.
