Box Score

(Written by Calvin Sports Information Student Assistant Derek Neice)

On a chilly Wednesday afternoon at Calvin’s Zuidema Field, the nationally-ranked Calvin men’s soccer team outlasted a persistent Kalamazoo squad 1-0. 

On the final box score, Calvin looked dominant in virtually every facet of the game, but on the field it was a different story.  A last second first half penalty kick by senior Michael Holwerda (Grand Rapids, MI) put Calvin on the board, and a scoreless second half saw the Knights prevail.

With the victory, Calvin moved into a tie for first place in the MIAA standings with Hope at 4-0-1 in league play. Adrian tied Hope on Wednesday night 1-1. Adrian also tied Calvin 0-0 earlier this year.
