FOR RELEASE

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - It was a great start to the season as a pair of newcomers, Yordan Rivera and Tyson Bradley-Kalischuk, each found the back of the net to lift the Forester men’s soccer team to a 2-1 road win over the Cardinals of Concordia University (Mich.) Tuesday afternoon.

Possession was the name of the game as HU owned a 23-15 shot advantage, logging 12 shots on goal to the Cardinals’ four. But it wasn’t until the 71st minute that the Foresters’ domination finally paid off. After giving up a goal six minutes earlier, Paul Holliday drew a foul in the box to which Yordan Rivera took full advantage by drilling the penalty kick to knot things up at 1-1.

With momentum clearly favoring the visitors, less than three minutes later Bradley Kamden served a ball from the left flank into Bradley-Kalischuk who slotted it past the keeper inside the six for the game-winner.

Drew Mattingly finished with three saves to pick up the win in goal.

The Foresters (1-0) travel to Kentucky over labor day weekend for the Georgetown College Classic. They take on the host Tigers on Friday at 8:00 p.m. and face Union College (Ky.) on Saturday at 2:00 p.m.
