Women’s Soccer Tops Kalamazoo 2-1 - Remains Unbeaten in MIAA Play

Saturday, October 10, 2009

Box Score

The Knights continued their undefeated conference mark in a clash with MIAA opponent Kalamazoo College on Saturday, defeating the Hornets 2-1 at Calvin’s Zuidema Field.

Struggling to get on the board early in previous games, Calvin had no such problems against Kalamazoo.  The Knights drew first blood in the sixth minute, with junior Elaine Schnabel redirecting a ball from junior Carly Prins into the back of the net.  The goal came after a barrage of chances and shots on net for the Knights, off of an opportunity created by some teamwork and hustle from freshman Liz Cancel and Senior Natalie Veurink on the right wing.

Men’s Soccer Defeats Kalamazoo - Moves Into Tie For First Place in MIAA Standings

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.
