Having already been eliminated from contention in the Crossroads League Tournament, the Bethel Pilots headed into Saturday's matchup against (RV) Marian knowing it would be the last contest of the season. As the underdogs, few expected BC to bring a victory back to Mishawaka; however, the Pilots put together a great performance for their final appearance and etched a 2-1 victory over the Knights, giving the team their first win since early September. Bethel finished the campaign with a 3-13-2 record and a 1-7-1 record in league play. Marian drops to 11-7 on the season, holds a 5-4 record in league play, and will likely finish fourth in the final league standings.
After 110 minutes of soccer, the Bethel Pilots and the Goshen Maple Leafs found themselves deadlocked at 1-1. The tie is Bethel's second of the season, leaving them with a 2-13-2 record and a 0-7-1 mark in league play. Goshen moves to 4-11-2 on their campaign and 0-5-2 in the Crossroads League.
In their final appearance on Morey Field for the 2015 season, the BC women's soccer team could not overcome the highly-favored Lancers of Grace College who are currently ranked 10th in the NAIA Top-25 Poll. The 4-0 decision in favor of Grace drops BC to 2-13-1 on the campaign and 0-7 in league action while the Lancers advance to 12-1-2 overall and 4-1-2 against Crossroads League opponents.
The rocky road continues for the ladies of BC women's soccer as they drop another Crossroads League contest without recording a goal. Tuesday night's contest against NAIA No. 20 Mount Vernon resulted in a 5-0 loss for the Pilots and moved their season record to 2-12-1 on the campaign and 0-6 in league play. The Cougars, who jumped in this week's poll to No. 18 (a poll that was released during the competition this evening), are now 9-4-2 on the season and 2-2-2 in league competition.
