Beaver Falls, PA – It was important for the Geneva men’s soccer team to put its two losses last week behind them and come out with a positive effort on Wednesday night. The Golden Tornadoes did exactly that with a dominant 6-0 performance against Bethany College at Merriman Athletic Complex. The Golden Tornadoes improved to 7-4 for the season including a perfect 4-0 home record.

In the 13th minute, Teddy Krzywiecki scored his first collegiate goal when he directed in a crossing ball off the foot of Jake McCracken.

The play started with a feed from Kenton Burckhart and finished with a perfect cross from Zac Buffalini.
Josh Mann scored his second goal of the game nine minutes into the second half and then Matt Weaver and Marcus Noel closed out the scoring for Geneva.
