Saginaw Valley started the scoring in the 18th minute when Mitch Reinhart put a one time shot past the goalkeeper off of a Walsh header that failed to clear the area.
The second Cardinal goal came from fellow defender Taylor Clarke at the 40:34 mark. The 2-0 score would take the squads in to halftime.
Sophomore forward Tyler Channell continued the SVSU scoring at the 58:30 mark, adding to the lead. Zach Walega added his first goal of the season to make the score 4-0 in the 89th minute when he dribbled through a group of Cavalier defenders and shot a ball past the outstretched goalkeeper. The last-minute goal would seal the 4-0 win for the Cardinals.
Freshman goalkeeper Aaron Gerwig notched his GLIAC-leading fourth shutout of the season. Gerwig is now 8-1-2 overall in 2013.
