SVSU’s women’s soccer team was not able to finish either of its matches this week due to weather conditions.
On Oct. 3 Saginaw Valley headed to Illinois to face Purdue Northwest for their first matchup this season in a Great Lakes Intercollegiate Conference (GLIAC) battle.
In the first half the Cardinals were able to shut out Purdue Northwest while carrying a lead into halftime.
20 minutes into the second half the weather became too much of a factor for the game to continue.
SVSU was holding onto a 5-0 lead when lightning struck near the field.
Officials decided to call the game at that time.
Saginaw Valley’s second game of the week came on Oct. 8 at Northwood University in Midland.
SVSU was able to score one goal in the first half while shutting out the Timberwolves to that point.
Due to rain and other weather factors during the week the field was deemed to be in too bad of condition to continue the game.
Officials made the decision to call the game during the halftime break with Saginaw Valley holding its 1-0 lead.
SVSU has started its season at 6-1-1 so far this season.
With both of the last two games being postponed, neither has currently been factored into the season record.
As of now neither game has a date to be completed.
SVSU continued its season on Oct. 10 at GLIAC foe Ferris State and will face Grand Valley State University on Oct. 15.
