COSTA MESA, Calif. – Bethesda University put forth a gallant effort only to fall 84 – 86 against Vanguard University. The Flames were coming off two good performances against NCAA D1 schools, Montana and Idaho State. "While we are disappointed in the loss, I am very happy with the steady improvement our guys are making as a team" said head coach Leo Balayon. "I knew coming in that it would take time for us to get better this season, having a lot of new players come in. We are a team that has been together for 3 months going up against teams that have been together for years. I'm just glad we are improving" added Balayon.
The Flames play Multnomah University this Friday in Lancaster, CA.
