UNIVERSITY CENTER, Mich. - Lexi Herrewig and Lindsey Van Rooy each tallied three points for Michigan Tech in its 3-1 win at Saginaw Valley State Friday. The win was the seventh in a row for the Huskies and moved their Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference record to a perfect 6-0.

Charley Porter broke up the Tech shutout with a goal for the Cardinals in the 68th minute.

"We asked our players to step up again today, and that's what they did," Tech coach Michelle Jacob said. "Our defense and mid's did a great job to possess the ball, and the result of that was Alyssa, Lindsey and Lexi finding the back of the net. We are very proud of the team's performance and also their willingness and drive to continue improving every opportunity they can."

Saginaw Valley State finished with advantages in shots, 14-11, and corner kicks, 6-2.
