Cardinals Clip Cougars for First Win, 2-1

UNIVERSITY CENTER, Mich. - The Saginaw Valley State University men’s soccer team defeated the St. Francis Cougars 2-1 for their first win of the season, in their 2009 home opener.

In the first half senior Kevin Fox (Flushing, Mich. / Flushing HS)got the Cardinals on the board first when he scored off a pass from junior Anthony Palazzolo (Warren, Mich. / Western Mich/ Hope) to give Saginaw Valley a 1-0 lead. St. Francis would quickly respond by scoring their only goal of the game on a penalty kick at the 16:03 mark of the first half. The score would remain tied at one until Palazzolo found the back of the net with a header on a pass from senior Ryan Seelhoff (Owosso, Mich. / Owosso HS) to end the scoring for the game.

With the win Saginaw Valley’s record improves to 1-2-1 overall, while St. Francis falls to 3-2-1 overall. The Cardinals will be back in action when they travel to take on Northwood University September 13 at 2:30pm.
