UNIVERSITY CENTER, Mich. – It was another week and another thrilling overtime win for the Saginaw Valley State University men's soccer team against Davenport University at home on Saturday.
The Cardinals netted the game's lone goal on a penalty kick in the 104th minute, giving SVSU its third straight overtime victory and keeping the team perfect at 5-0-0.
Mason Maziasz, from Troy, Mich., kept the Cardinals in the game, denying all five Panther shots on goal. He made several crucial one-on-one saves in the game, including one brilliant effort in overtime just minutes before the game-winning goal.
