LINDSBORG — Bethany College’s men’s soccer team was edged 2-1 by William Woods University in its season opener on Saturday.
Alex Clark, off a Frank Berry assist, scored just over a minute into the game for Bethany to create a lot of excitement. But it would be the bright spot for the Swedes, whose offense struggled the rest of the way.
The Owls scored two goals before halftime and then the teams battled to a scoreless draw in the second half.
Bethany makes the long trip to Iowa on Friday to take on Dordt College. It plays the following day at Northwestern College.
