Men’s soccer ties Indianapolis 2-2

UNIVERSITY CENTER, Mich. – The Saginaw Valley State University men’s soccer team tied the University of Indianapolis on Saturday 2-2 at the SVSU Soccer Complex.

In a match that went to double-overtime, the Cardinals could not capitalize on a late break away by senior forward Brent Walker (Owosso, Mich./Owosso HS) that would have given SVSU the win.

During regulation, the Cardinals fell behind as the Greyhounds struck first at the 33 minute mark. SVSU would go into the halftime break down 1-0.

As the second half got underway, the Cardinals came out energized, and found the back of the net at the 47 minute mark when Walker tied the score at 1-1. However, eight minutes later, Indy buried the ball behind sophomore goalkeeper Luke Deming (Thomas Township, Mich./Freeland HS) to go ahead 2-1. It took the Cardinals 11 minutes to answer that goal when junior Vinny Vasilevski (Shelby Township, Mich./Utica Eisenhower HS) gave the Cardinals the tie.

SVSU moves to 2-5-2 overall, and 0-3 in the GLIAC as they next face Davenport University at 4 p.m. Wednesday (Oct. 8) at the SVSU Soccer Complex.
