Looking to extend their two game win streak, the Knights of Calvin traveled to Van Andel Stadium in Holland to face the Flying Dutchmen of Hope. And, just as they had last year, the Knights returned to Grand Rapids with an exciting 1-0 victory. Calvin’s lone goal came early as sophomore Travis Vegter struck for the Knights, breaking through the Hope back line to face Hope freshman keeper Ethan Beswick one-on-one. Dribbling toward the corner of the six yard box, Vegter snuck a shot under Beswick’s arm and inside the near post to put Calvin up 1-0.
