Despite the Calvin men being short men at their game Saturday, the Knights competed strongly against host team Baldwin Wallace University in Ohio most of the afternoon before falling 10-7.

At the half for the afternoon, the Knights were able to stay tied with the Yellow Jackets 4-4. However, Baldwin Wallace outlasted the Knights and took an 8-7 lead into the final quarter of play. The Yellow Jackets were then able to score two insurance goals in the last quarter to secure the win.

Leading the team in the attack against the Yellow Jackets was sophomore Tim Marco with three goals and five ground balls while freshman D.J. VanderBaan put in two goals for his team. Senior Greg Boer pitched in two goals as well. Junior Casey Harless led the Knights in ground balls with 12, while senior Drew Sroczynski earned 10 saves.

Calvin returns to action next Friday when they host their first game of the season against Concordia-Wisconsin. The game will begin at 4 p.m. at Grand Rapids Christian High School.
