On the day that is remembered for those who gave their lives in the terrorist attacks of 2001, the Calvin men’s soccer team rose to the challenge and defeated Wheaton College by a tight score of 2-1.
It was the first time that Calvin had registered a win against the Thunder since 1992, stopping the 12-0-1 streak that Wheaton had amassed in that span of time. Sophomore Justin Ahearne (Hudsonville, MI) headed in an early goal to give the Knights the lead, and junior Dan Kmetz (Strongsville, OH) added a goal with a wind-guided corner kick later in the first half. Wheaton would close the deficit to 2-1 shortly before halftime off of a vicious strike by sophomore Drew Golz (River Forest, ILL), but a scoreless second half saw the Knights prevail.
