The Basics

Score: #19 Saginaw Valley State 3 - Ohio Dominican 1
Records: SVSU (11-2-0, 9-1-0 GLIAC) | ODU (0-10-2, 0-9-2 GLIAC) 
Location: Braddock Field - University Center, Mich.

UNIVERSITY CENTER - The Saginaw Valley State University men's soccer team posted a 3-1 victory over the Ohio Dominican Panthers on Friday afternoon in a home GLIAC matchup at Braddock Field.

Jordan Kalk got things started for SVSU, as he used a Tyler Channell feed for the team's first goal and a 1-0 lead just 3:41 into the game. 

Channell would get in on the action at the 25:17 marker of the first half, scoring a goal of his own off an assist by Matt Wilson to push the lead out to 2-0. 

That two goal advantage remained into the halftime break for the Cardinals.

Kalk would add another score for the Cards at the 52:34 mark in the second half, as he once again received a pass from Channell and connected on a goal to make the score 3-0.

Ohio Dominican's Ryan Kasprzak scored a goal for the visitors at the 55:45 marker, cutting the lead to 3-1 off a feed from Austin Blair.

That's what the final score would read as time expired on the game clock.

From SVSU Head Coach Andy Wagstaff

 "Overall, we are happy with the result. From a performance perspective we were not as clinical in the attack as we have been lately. ODU is a very well-coached team and we credit them for putting a good game plan together and making us earn the three points today. We are satisfied with the win and now can prepare and focus for our match against Lake Erie on Sunday."
