Calvin Hockey Team Captures MCHC West Division Title With 4-3 Victory Over Aquinas

The Calvin ACHA hockey team wrapped up the Michigan Collegiate Hockey Conference West Division title for the second consecutive year on Friday night, defeating cross-town rival Aquinas College 4-3 at the Southside Ice Arena.

Calvin led 1-0 and later 3-1 but the host Saints came back to tie the game each time. Senior Jordan Duncan (Oshawa, Ontario) scored the game-winning goal on a pretty give-and-go play with senior Ryan Betts (Grand Rapids, Mich./Grand Rapids Christian HS) with 7:41 left in the third period.

The Knights made the 4-3 lead stand up the rest of the way to improve to 24-1-1 overall and 12-1-0 in league play.

Calvin will host Aquinas in the return matchup Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. at Eagles Ice Center. The game will also serve as Senior Night for Calvin's senior class.
