Ranked seventh nationally, Calvin (3-0-0) scored all five of its goals in the first half.

Senior Bobby McCaw (Dubuque, Ia./Hempstead HS) scored his third goal of the season and the 44th of his career in the 14th minute of play, tapping in a feed from junior Ian Adams (Grand Rapids, Mich./Grand Rapids Christian HS).
