Northwood Downs Men's Soccer 3-2

Midland, MI - The men's soccer team traveled to Midland Friday afternoon to take on NCAA Division II Northwood University. Early on the visiting Wolverines took the lead on senior Alek Vasilevski'is first goal of the season just past the 25 minute mark of the first half. Unfortunately for Michigan-Dearborn (0-2) the lead did not last long as just over three minutes later, Northwood's Adam Thomas would tie the game. The score remained tied 1-1 at halftime.

Northwood (1-0) would not waste much time to start the second half as James DeCosemo would give the Timberwolves a 2-1 lead just five minutes into the half. However, the Wolverines' Vasilevski would score his second unassisted goal of the game just over three minutes later to tie the score at 2. Northwood would keep the pressure on Michigan-Dearborn and goalie Erick Beas until the 63:51 mark when Mayowa Olufeko would give Northwood the 3-2 lead, a lead they would not relinquish. The Timberwolves had 35 shots to Michigan-Dearborn's 7 shots. Beas made 7 saves in the game. The men's soccer team will look for its first win of the season on Tuesday, September 8th, as they host Cleary University at 11:00am at the Legacy Center in Brighton.
