Cardinals Tie Timberwolves, 1-1 in 2OT

MIDLAND, Mich. - The Saginaw Valley State University men’s soccer team tied Northwood University this afternoon (Sept. 13) 1-1 in their 2009 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference opener.

The Cardinals got on the scoreboard first when Ryan Seelhoff (Owosso, Mich. / Owosso HS) found the back of the net on an unassisted goal at 21:13. The Saginaw Valley defense and stellar play of Piotr Kazmierczak would hold that advantage until the 79th minute when the Timberwolves finally found the net. The teams would go scoreless the rest of the way as they played to a 1-1 tie in two overtimes. Kazmierczak had nine saves on the afternoon.

With the tie the Cardinals are now 1-2-2 overall on the season and 0-0-1 in the GLIAC while Northwood is 3-1-1 overall on the season and 0-0-1 in the GLIAC. Saginaw Valley will take to the road on Friday (Sept. 18) to play Tiffin University for their next match.
