GRAND RAPIDS—In what could be called the game of the year so far for Calvin Saturday afternoon at Grand Rapids Christian High School, the Knights added another chapter in their rivalry with Hope by defeating the Flying Dutch 1-0, capturing their third straight MIAA title and obtaining an automatic bid to the national tournament.

A match that certainly held a lot of emotion on both sides, Saturday’s contest would prove to be sweet for the Knights after having lost a heartbreaker to Hope by the same score earlier this season at Hope’s Van Andel Soccer Stadium.
