In the men’s game, two goals in the final seven minutes of the first half put the Hornets ahead over Olivet.  The Comets started the second with a quick goal, but Kalamazoo matched it about three minutes later.   Jacob Pink scored twice for the Hornets, both on penalty kicks set up due to hand-balls in the box.
