The Bethany Lutheran College men’s soccer team opened its 2016 Upper Midwest Athletic Conference schedule at home on Saturday with a 2-0 loss to North Central.
The Vikings attempted nine total shots during the 90 minutes with their best chance of scoring happening late in the second period of play when freshman Jonathan Sehloff (Mankato, Minn.) drilled the post from 40 feet away, which would’ve cut the deficit in half.
Goalkeeper Matt Bitter (Bemidji, Minn.) finished the contest with 12 saves for the Vikings.
Bethany will have a quick turn-around, as they will now travel to Hamline on Monday for another non-conference game against the Pipers. Scheduled start time is set for 4 p.m.
