BEDFORD, Ind. - The Saginaw Valley State University men's soccer team defeated Oakland City University 1-0 today (Sept. 4). This marked the first career win for head coach Cale Wassermann.
Freshman Noah Sawyer (East Lansing, Mich. / Haslett HS) scored his first collegiate goal for Saginaw Valley when he found the back of the net off a pass from Taylor Clarke (Cary, Ill. / Cary-Grove HS). The one goal would be enough as the Cardinal defense was able to stop Oakland City from scoring and give senior goaltender Piotr Kazmierczak (Stargard, Poland) his first shut-out of the season.
With the win Saginaw Valley improves to 1-1 overall on the season, while Oakland City falls to 1-2 overall on the season. The Cardinals will return to action when they travel to Northwood on Wednesday (Sept. 8) for their first GLIAC (Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference) contest of the season. The game is scheduled to start at 4:30pm.
