This will hopefully be the first of many videos to come this school year. I was hired by my school to report on any and every sport through our YouTube channel. My first video was covering the men’s Hope vs. Calvin soccer game. If you know anything about Hope athletics, you know that the Hope/Calvin rivalry is a huge… and that’s an understatement. The rivalry was ranked by ESPN as the #3 college rivalry among all divisions, right behind Duke/UNC and OSU/Michigan.
It made my job even more fun that night because the guys beat Calvin 2-1! The student section came out in full force hoping to catch another great Hope/Calvin match-up and the team did not disappoint. Sophomore Jeff Ekdom scored his second goal against Calvin (his first was the team’s only goal against the Knights in last year’s home game, giving them a 1-0 victory). The second goal came from freshman Brayden West. Junior Logan Neil is known as the best goalkeeper in the MIAA, and he proved it that night. He had 5 saves, each of which was “incredible”, in the words of his coach.
So check out my video about the game:
The next video, featuring the Hope women’s volleyball Pink game should be out soon!
