GC is 7-0 against the Wildcats all-time. The win this season marked coaches Bill Cronin’s, Craig Mullins’, Bruce Owens’, Steve Hill’s and Marty Park’s 150th with the Orange & Black.

“Bethel is a very good team,” Cronin said. “They started the season as No. 11 in the nation, went 2-2 early on trying to find a rhythm under first-year head coach Chris Elliot. They left here 2-3 and finished the season on six-straight wins.

“I expect it to be a great game and a tough first-round matchup.”
