The Calvin College (MAIA) reserves proved too much for Great Lakes, defeating the Crusaders on Saturday 6-1.
After allowing an early goal, the Crusaders answered with a goal from Jacob Embs in the 25th to level the scoreline. However, after both sides missed opportunities from the penalty spot, the tide definitely turned in Calvin's favour, as they scored a pair of goals in five minutes to enter the break up 3-1. The second half saw the Knights extend their lead with three goals over a dominant seconds half to round out a final scoreline of 6-1.
Next up for GLCC is the much-anticipated fixture with Kuyper College under the lights at Davenport.
"We didn't play to our full potential against Calvin and we know that," says Joey Whittaker, "But we are excited to play at Davenport and excited to get our first win there."
"We have what it takes to contend in the regionals as a team," says freshman Danny Beugar, "I am pretty sure about getting our first win on Monday. We have that desire to go out and get that win and we will!"
