Box Score

OLIVET—Calvin stretched its win streak to five games and improved to 4-0 in MIAA play with a 2-1 victory at Olivet Saturday afternoon. Calvin scored a goal in each half and then held off a late Comet comeback attempt to gain the win.

Calvin is tied with Hope at 4-0 in league play with the two rivals set to play next Wednesday at Calvin at 4:00 p.m.

In its win over Olivet (3-6-1 overall, 1-3-0 MIAA), Calvin took a 1-0 lead on a goal by freshman Miles Colago (Anoka, MN/Anoka HS) off a feed from sophomore Brad Heethuis (Jenison/Unity Christian HS) with just 1:22 left in the first half. The play came on a nifty give-and-go between Colago and Heethuis at the top of the Olivet box.

A goal by freshman Ahmed Gobana (Burnsville, MN/Burnsville HS) assisted by freshman Justin Ahearne (Hudsonville/Hudsonville HS) in the 70th minute of play gave Calvin a 2-0 lead.

Olivet sliced the deficit in half on a goal by Mike May in the 84th minute but could not score again.

Calvin (7-3-0 overall) held a 22-5 shots at goal advantage with senior goalkeeper Darrin Cline (Grandville/Grandville HS) picking up one save for the Knights while Ethan Felsing had 12 saves for the Comets.
