OKLAHOMA CITY — Hopefully, Bethany College’s football team can find its offense when it begins the KCAC portion of its schedule next Saturday.

The Swedes, for the second game in a row, put few points on the board as they were stymied in a 30-7 loss Saturday to the Langston Lions.

Bethany scored 10 points in its two non-conference defeats, but hopes to get well on Saturday when it hosts Bethel for the conference opener.

The Swedes did have their chances, as they had a field goal blocked and also lost opportunities due to an interception and fumble.

The lone Swede score came when new starting quarterback Darius Handcox pitched a 16-yard strike to Anthony Jackson midway through the second quarter.

It was only 9-7 at the half, but it was all Langston in the second half with three scores.

Bethany improved its output over last week, but still was held to 251 total yards. Nate Ocran rushed for 60 yards and Handcox threw for 154, nearly half of that on one play of 74 yards to Michael Wimberly, who had 102 yards on four catches.
