Cardinals Pick Up First Win of Season at Lewis, 2-1

ROMEOVILLE, Ill. - The Saginaw Valley State University women’s soccer team picked up it’s first win of the season today (Aug. 30) against Lewis Univeristy by a score of 2-1.

In a game that was dominated by both defenses in the first half it was freshman Tiffany Bell (Troy, Mich. / Troy Athens HS) who gave the Cardinals their first goal of the game and of the season on an assist by Jacylyn Barrett (Williamston, Mich. / Williamston HS). Lewis would knot the game at 1-1 just two minutes later, but Bell would strike again for her second goal of the game to give the Cardinals’ a 2-1 lead that they would hold on to for the win.

With the win Saginaw Valley improves to 1-1 overall on the season, while Lewis falls to 1-1 on the season. The Cardinals will return to action on Sept. 8 when they host St. Francis (Ind.) at 2:00 PM.
