Olivet overcomes 4-0 deficit to defeat Calvin

Olivet junior Esteban Russell scored two goals in their comeback victory over Calvin Olivet Athletics

The Olivet College men's soccer team rallied from a 4-0 deficit to stun Calvin College, 6-5, this afternoon in its MIAA opener this afternoon. The six goals for the Comets are the most since Sept. 1, 2009, when they scored eight against Andrews University and the most in an MIAA game since Oct. 8, 2005, when they had five at Alma College.

Today's game was a tale of two halves. In the first half, Calvin out-shot Olivet, 13-6, and built a 4-0 lead. In the second half, the Comets out-shot the Knights, 11-6, and out-scored, 5-1.

Olivet began its comeback at the 43:50 mark when freshman Michael Moscone scored his first collegiate goal. Senior Jake Jensen and sophomore Evan Simpson each earned an assist on the goal.

The Comets then scored four goals in a span of exactly 10 minutes in the second half to take a 5-4 lead. Junior Fred Smyser sent a shot into the goal at the near post at the 52:00 mark. Freshmen Matt Meldrum and Cory Werner-Hoskins were each credited with an assist.

Three minutes and 51 seconds later, sophomore Esteban Russell made the score 4-3 when he ripped a shot from the top of the 18-yard box over the keeper's head. Off a free kick from Russell from about 40 yards out,sophomore Camden Iwasko turned the ball into the net at the far post in the 58th minute to tie the game at 4-4.

Using the momentum, junior Adam Wright found a seam down the left side of the field. He dribbled the ball into the 6-yard box, and sent a low shot to the far post with 28 minutes left. Olivet capped its scoring when Russell scored in the 73rd minute off a pass from freshman Kyle Cupp.

Calvin answered with a goal by senior Nick Holtrop in the 75th minute of play. The Holtrop goal was his third of the game, marking his first collegiate hat-trick. Holtrop scored a pair of first half goals with freshman Taylor Pruis and sophomore Tyler Vegter also scoring for the Knights. The Comets were led by Russell's two goals and one assist.
